Pavlof volcano news & activity updates:
Pavlov volcano (Alaska Peninsula, USA) activity update
Monday Jul 01, 2013 16:12 PM | BY: T
The volcano has been quiet during the past 24 hours, but it is unclear whether this is already an end or only a pause in the eruption, or whether some weak activity is still continuing. AVO reports relatively continuous, but low-level tremor being still present and it is possible that minor emissions of ash, gas and steam and low-level lava fountaining are still occurring intermittently.
Friday, Jun 28, 2013
Eruptive activity is continuing, but at a much lower level than earlier this week. The level of seismicity over the past 24 hours has continued to decline and now consists primarily of low level continuous tremor. Periods of continuous tremor are likely associated with lava fountaining and minor ash production, but at this level, emission rates are probably very low. ...
Thursday, Jun 27, 2013
The eruption had increased yesterday and produced ash plumes rising up to about 8.5 km (28,000 ft), but has decreased in strength again today. ...
Tuesday, Jun 25, 2013
The eruption continues at low levels. Seismic tremor and occasional explosions are being detected in seismic data and indicate that minor ash emission is likely occurring, although no ash plumes were detected on satellite data over the past day. ...
Tuesday, Jun 18, 2013
No changes in activity were reported by the Alaska Volcano Observatory. Seismic activity continues to decrease and no elevated surface temperatures were detected in satellite images during the past 24 hours. No plumes were visible in satellite images, while web camera images show mostly cloudy conditions.
Monday, Jun 17, 2013
AVO reports no significant change in the seismicity at Pavlof in the past 24 hours: seismic tremor continues, but at lower amplitudes than previously. ...
