AVO VOLCANO ACTIVITY NOTIFICATION

ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY DAILY UPDATE
U.S. Geological Survey
Monday, July 29, 2013, 11:53 AM AKDT (Monday, July 29, 2013, 19:53 UTC)


PAVLOF VOLCANO (VNUM #312030)
55°25'2" N 161°53'37" W, Summit Elevation 8261 ft (2518 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW

Seismicity has remained at low levels over the past 24 hours. Elevated surface temperatures, consistent with cooling lava flows, were detected in satellite data over the past 24 hours, although, views of the volcano in satellite data and in the Cold Bay web camera were often obscured by clouds. It remains possible for eruptive activity to resume at any time and seismic activity remains slightly elevated above background levels.

VENIAMINOF VOLCANO (VNUM #312070)
56°11'52" N 159°23'35" W, Summit Elevation 8225 ft (2507 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE

Low-level eruptive activity consisting of lava effusion and minor emissions of steam and ash continues. Nearly continuous, gradually fluctuating volcanic tremor and occasional explosions have been observed in seismic data over the past 24 hours. A water-rich plume likely containing minor amounts of ash were observed in satellite images this morning extending for 45 km (28 miles) to the northwest at an estimated altitude of less than 15,000 ft (4.5 km) above sea level. Elevated surface temperatures at the intracaldera cone also have been observed in satellite data. Web camera views from Perryville have been obscured by clouds and fog.



CLEVELAND VOLCANO (VNUM #311240)
52°49'20" N 169°56'42" W, Summit Elevation 5676 ft (1730 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW

Satellite observation and views from the Nikolski web camera have been obscured by clouds and fog over the past day. AVO has received no other reports of activity at the volcano.
