Pavlov volcano (Alaska Peninsula, USA) activity update

MODIS hot spot data (yesterday) for Pavlov volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
MODIS hot spot data (yesterday) for Pavlov volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
Weak activity (probably minor lava effusion) continues at the volcano, visible on satellite imagery as a thermal anomaly. AVO only observed degassing and almost no ash emissions, but maintains orange alert level in case eruptive activity restarts.

Eruption plume from Pavlov on 21 May seen from space (NASA)
Thursday, May 23, 2013
The eruption at Pavlov continues but seismic and eplosive-effusive eruptive activity have dropped compared to the day before yesterday when an ash plume reached 7,000 m altitude and was visible from space. [more]
Monday, May 20, 2013
The eruption continues with no significant changes. Small lava fountaining, explosions, and the explosive interaction of the lava flow with snow and ice generate a plume of steam, ash, and gas, occasionally reaching up to 22,000 ft. above sea level, and extending primarily southeast from the volcano over the North Pacific Ocean visible in satellite images. ...

Sunday, May 19, 2013
The eruption continues with lava fountaining, an active lava flow and ash emissions, accompanied by continuous seismic tremor. Aerial observations suggest that the interaction of lava and ice on the upper slope of the volcano create mud flows and pyroclastic flows. ... [more]
MODIS hot spot data (past 7 days) for Pavlov volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
Friday, May 17, 2013
The eruption continues with lava fountaining at the summit that feeds a lava flow now over 100 m long and produces a continuous ash, steam, and gas plume extending downwind from the volcano for 50 to 100 km at an altitude of about 20,000 ft above sea level. This morning the cloud was carried to the southeast. Satellite images show persistent elevated surface temperatures at the summit and on the northwest flank. ... [more]

Thursday, May 16, 2013
The eruption continues. The volcano produces a lava flow on the northwest flank. Interaction of the lava flow and ice, producing debris flows, as well as possible explosions at the vent produce a steam-ash plume rising up to about 20,000 ft. above sea level. ... [more]
