AVO VOLCANO ACTIVITY NOTIFICATION

ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY INFORMATION STATEMENT
U.S. Geological Survey
Wednesday, March 16, 2022, 9:50 AM AKDT (Wednesday, March 16, 2022, 17:50 UTC)


A severe interruption to a regional telecommunication link in King Salmon has resulted in the loss of data flow from seismic stations at nine volcanoes in the Katmai region and northern Alaska Peninsula over the past weeks. As a result, AVO can no longer seismically monitor the volcanoes listed below. Thus, we are unable to assess whether these volcanoes are at their normal background state, or to quickly confirm or dismiss reports of activity at these volcanoes.

Because these volcanoes are not currently seismically monitored, the Aviation Color Code and Alert Level is being changed from GREEN/NORMAL to UNASSIGNED/UNASSIGNED. As at other volcanoes without real-time seismic monitoring, AVO will continue to use satellite and lightning data, regional infrasound, and reports from pilots and ground observers to detect signs of eruptive activity.

There is no estimate of when the telecommunication link will be repaired. AVO will issue additional information once data from the seismic networks are available.
