|(1) VOLCANO OBSERVATORY NOTICE FOR AVIATION (VONA)|
|(3) Volcano:||Bogoslof (VNUM #311300)|
|(4) Current Color Code:||YELLOW|
|(5) Previous Color Code:||ORANGE|
|(6) Source:||Alaska Volcano Observatory|
|(7) Notice Number:|
|(8) Volcano Location:||N 53 deg 55 min W 168 deg 2 min|
|(10) Summit Elevation:||492 ft (150 m)|
|(11) Volcanic Activity Summary:||No new volcanic activity has been observed at Bogoslof Volcano in satellite, seismic or infrasound data since a small explosion was detected on March 13. The last major explosive event occurred on March 8, 2017, and occasional high-spatial resolution satellite images show no significant surficial changes due to eruptive activity since that time. Based on the absence of detected activity over the past three weeks, AVO is lowering the Aviation Color Code to YELLOW and the Volcano Alert Level to ADVISORY.
Bogolsof is not monitored by a real-time seismic network and this inhibits AVO's ability to detect unrest that may lead to an explosive eruption. Rapid detection of an ash-producing eruption may be possible using a combination of data from seismic and infrasound networks on neighboring islands and satellite and lightning detection data.
|(12) Volcanic cloud height:||N/A|
|(13) Other volcanic cloud information:||N/A|
|(14) Remarks:||Given the lack of a local monitoring network and the unpredictability of the volcano, activity at Bogoslof could ramp up again at any time. Thus a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) remains in effect over the volcano for the time being. Please see http://tfr.faa.gov/tfr2/list.html for the status of the TFR.|
