AVO VOLCANO ACTIVITY NOTIFICATION
(1) VOLCANO OBSERVATORY NOTICE FOR AVIATION (VONA)
(2) Issued: (20210420/1935Z)
(3) Volcano: Ukinrek Maars (VNUM #312131)
(4) Current Color Code: UNASSIGNED
(5) Previous Color Code: GREEN
(6) Source: Alaska Volcano Observatory
(7) Notice Number: 2021/A177
(8) Volcano Location: N 57 deg 50 min W 156 deg 30 min
(9) Area: Alaska Peninsula
(10) Summit Elevation: 299 ft (91 m)
(11) Volcanic Activity Summary: The Alaska Volcano Observatory can no longer seismically monitor Ukinrek-Maars because of seismic station outages. As a result, AVO is unable to assess seismic unrest at this volcano. Because it is no longer seismically monitored, AVO will move from volcano alert level NORMAL and aviation color code GREEN to "UNASSIGNED." Additional seismic stations may come back online this spring as snowpack decreases. Any eruptive activity or unrest may still be detected with the remaining seismic stations, in regional infrasound networks, through detection of lightning, and/or monitoring of satellite images.
(12) Volcanic cloud height: Unknown
(13) Other volcanic cloud information: Unknown
