AVO VOLCANO ACTIVITY NOTIFICATION
(1) VOLCANO OBSERVATORY NOTICE FOR AVIATION (VONA)
(2) Issued: (20170626/2006Z)
(3) Volcano: Cleveland (VNUM #311240)
(4) Current Color Code: YELLOW
(5) Previous Color Code: ORANGE
(6) Source: Alaska Volcano Observatory
(7) Notice Number:
(8) Volcano Location: N 52 deg 49 min W 169 deg 56 min
(9) Area: Aleutians
(10) Summit Elevation: 5676 ft (1730 m)
(11) Volcanic Activity Summary: Recent observations of Cleveland Volcano suggest that unrest has declined and it is unlikely that eruptive activity is continuing. Satellite observations have yielded no evidence for continuing lava effusion and there have been no detections of anomalous seismicity or infrasound from the volcano since a brief explosion on Tuesday evening (May 16) at 19:17 AKDT (03:17 May 17 UTC). Evidence for lava effusion in the summit crater was observed in satellite data on June 7, but since then observed surface temperatures have become weaker, suggesting that lava effusion has paused or ended.

The overall decline in unrest and lack of evidence for lava effusion warrants downgrading the Aviation Color Code to YELLOW and the Volcano Alert Level to ADVISORY.
(12) Volcanic cloud height: N/A
(13) Other volcanic cloud information: N/A
(14) Remarks: Cleveland volcano is not monitored with a full real-time seismic network and this inhibits AVO's ability to detect unrest that may lead to future activity. We are able to detect explosive activity using infrasound and limited seismic instruments on the island.
