Veniaminof volcano (Alaska Peninsula, USA) activity update
Wednesday Oct 09, 2013 20:23 PM | BY: T
The eruption of Veniaminof continues with the effusion of lava from the cone in the summit caldera.
Seismic activity remains elevated, but constant. Elevated surface temperatures consistent with the continued extrusion of lava were observed in several images during clear periods over the past day. No ash detected. (AVO daily update)

The Alaska Volcano Observatory recently lowered the alert status from Orange/Watch to Yellow/Advisory. Although some weak tremor continues to be recorded under the caldera, no more eruptive activity seems to have taken place during the past weeks. The lava flows and the new cinder cone that was built inside the caldera are now cooling.

The eruption seems to be ending. AVO reports that "seismic tremor continues though at decreased levels compared to prior weeks. No unusual activity was observed in webcam images. These data indicate that the effusion of lava from the active vent may be ongoing though diminished."
Thursday, Sep 12, 2013
A phase of strong continuous tremor occurred between yesterday noon and this morning (local time), possibly indicating another paroxysm with lava fountaining and associated ash emissions. Cloud cover prevented direct observations.
Tuesday, Sep 10, 2013
The eruption continues at moderate levels, as evidenced by continuous seismic tremor and elevated surface temperatures in satellite views. Effusion and fountaining of lava from the active vent are likely ongoing as is low level ash emissions that are, at this time, restricted to an area within a few miles of the vent. (AVO daily update)
