|(11) Volcanic Activity Summary:||The explosive eruption that started at about 01:10 UTC 12/22 (16:10 AKST today) was short-lived and produced an ash cloud as high as 35,000 ft asl that drifted northward. Seismic data recorded on neighboring island networks indicates that the eruption lasted about 30 minutes after which seismicity rapidly declined and remains low. No activity has been observed in recent satellite images or infrasound data. On the basis of this information, the Aviation Color Code is lowered to ORANGE and the Alert Level to WATCH.
AVO has no ground-based volcano monitoring equipment on Bogoslof volcano. We will monitor satellite images and data from distant seismic and infrasound instruments for indications of significant explosive activity.
