Seismic recording from Pavlof volcano PVV station (AVO / USGS)
Seismic recording from Pavlof volcano PVV station (AVO / USGS)
Seismic activity of the volcano has increased again during the past 48 hours. Satellite data show at least some small ash emissions have taken place although the Alaska Volcano Observatory does not speak of a new eruption taking place (such ash emissions could be related to collapses in the crater etc without new magma erupting).
The current Volcano Alert Level on the USGS scale is "Advisory" and the current Aviation Color Code is YELLOW.
