ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY DAILY UPDATE
U.S. Geological Survey
Wednesday, January 11, 2023, 11:35 AM AKST (Wednesday, January 11, 2023, 20:35 UTC)
Seismic activity is elevated at Semisopochnoi Volcano, with nearly continuous, weak tremor. No volcanic activity was observed in satellite images, but webcam views showed minor steam emissions from the north crater of Mount Young.
Small eruptions producing minor ash deposits within the vicinity of the active north crater of Mount Young (formerly known as Mount Cerberus) and ash clouds usually under 10,000 ft (3 km) above sea level have characterized the recent activity. Additional ash-producing events could occur again with little warning.
Semisopochnoi Volcano is monitored by local seismic and infrasound sensors, satellite data, web cameras, and regional infrasound and lightning networks.
Weakly elevated surface temperatures at Great Sitkin Volcano were seen in satelllite views over the past day, suggesting that lava continues to erupt in the volcano's summit crater. Only a few small local earthquakes were detected.
Great Sitkin Volcano is monitored by local seismic and infrasound sensors, satellite data, web cameras, and regional infrasound and lightning networks.
No eruptive activity was observed at Pavlof Volcano over the past day, although minor steaming at the summit of the volcano was seen in clear webcam views. Only a few small local earthquakes were detected during the last 24 hours.
Small explosions associated with the current eruption could happen at any time and may be accompanied by small ash plumes within the immediate vicinity of the volcano. The level of unrest at Pavlof Volcano can change quickly and the progression to more significant eruptive activity can occur with little or no warning.
Pavlof Volcano is monitored by local seismic and infrasound sensors, satellite data, web cameras, and regional infrasound and lightning networks.
The ongoing swarm near Takawangha Volcano continued over the past day. This activity may be due to the movement of magma beneath the volcano. No signs of volcanic activity were observed in partly cloudy satellite images.
