ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Wednesday, December 30, 2009, 12:46 PM AKST (Wednesday, December 30, 2009, 21:46 UTC)


REDOUBT VOLCANO (VNUM #313030)
60°29'7" N 152°44'38" W, Summit Elevation 10197 ft (3108 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW

The rate of shallow, small earthquakes at Redoubt Volcano has decreased markedly since yesterday. The Aviation Color Code remains YELLOW and the Volcano Alert Level remains ADVISORY.

Satellite views of Redoubt have been mostly obscured by clouds. The Cook Inlet web camera image this morning shows no unusual activity. Web cameras near the volcano are obscured by snow and ice. A pilot report this morning described a minor vapor plume from the volcano but no significant changes in the summit area.

AVO continues to monitor the volcano closely and will attempt to overfly the volcano and conduct other field maintenance of instrumentation sites tomorrow.
