Pavlof volcano news & activity updates:
Pavlov volcano (Alaska Peninsula, USA) activity update
Thursday Jun 13, 2013 08:14 AM | BY: T
Current seismic recording from Pavlov volcano (PVV station, AVO)
Activity (external and internal) has been decreasing, although now intermittent ash emissions and possibly effusion of lava continue, AVO reports.
Wednesday, Jun 12, 2013
Ash emissions continue, and possibly, a small lava flow is effusing from the summit. ...
Monday, Jun 10, 2013
Ash emissions, probably caused by strombolian activity continue to be observed. Seismic tremor and explosion signals accompany the activity. Persistent elevated surface temperatures visible on satellite data suggest that there is some lava effusion as well (in the form of small flows or a new lava dome). ...
Saturday, Jun 08, 2013
Weak eruptive activity continues, producing small steam and ash plumes drifting at about 18-20,000 ft (5-6 km) altitude SSE as detected on satellite data (VAAC Anchorage).
Friday, Jun 07, 2013
The renewed eruptive activity (since 4 June) continues at low to moderate levels, accompanied by increased seismic activity. AVO reported low lava fountaining, although webcam images of the plume are more consistent with classic strombolian-type activity. Yesterday morning, ash emissions rose to 14-18,000 ft (4.2-5.6 km) altitude and drifted about 45 km SW. ...
Wednesday, Jun 05, 2013
New ash emissions resumed at approximately 11:00 AKDT (19:00 UTC) this morning and were seen in satellite data and observed by pilots. The new ash plume was drifting SE at approx. 19,000 ft (6 km) a.s.l. altitude. AVO reported weak seismicity beginning at 10:57 AKDT and raised the Aviation Color Code to Orange.

Desert, Salt & Volcanoes
: One of our best volcano expeditions! Stay 3 full days / nights at the active lava lake of Erta Ale, explore the wonders of Dallol and the Danakil desert in northern Ethiopia. 14 days expedition during Nov-March, small groups, guided by geologist.
Latest quakes in Greece
: Greece has a lot of earthquake activity, but most of them occur around the margin of the Aegean microplate. The Cycladic islands are located in its center and therefore seismically comparably quiet.
: A third tectonic setting where volcanism occurs is believed to be the result of mantle plumes and not directly related to plate boundaries. So called hot spot volcanoes fall into this category.
