Semisopochnoi volcano news & activity updates:

Semisopochnoi volcano (Alaska): alert level lowered back to green

Monday Sep 23, 2019 05:55 AM | BY: T

Seismicity at the volcano has decreased over the past few weeks with no observations of seismic tremor since September 15.
Low-level sulfur dioxide emissions continue to be observed when conditions permit. Other than the ongoing refilling of the crater lake, no changes in surface features have been observed since the small, shallow cone that formed around August 24. Due to the decrease in activity, AVO lowered the color code/activity level to YELLOW/ADVISORY on 20 Sep.
