(1) VOLCANO OBSERVATORY NOTICE FOR AVIATION (VONA)
(2) Issued: (20171206/2009Z)
(3) Volcano: Bogoslof (VNUM #311300)
(4) Current Color Code: UNASSIGNED
(5) Previous Color Code: YELLOW
(6) Source: Alaska Volcano Observatory
(7) Notice Number:
(8) Volcano Location: N 53 deg 55 min W 168 deg 2 min
(9) Area: Aleutians
(10) Summit Elevation: 492 ft (150 m)
(11) Volcanic Activity Summary: The last detected explosive activity at Bogoslof occurred on August 30, 2017. Over the past three months there has been no significant activity observed in seismic, infrasound, satellite or lightning data. Thus, we are decreasing the Aviation Color Code and Alert Level to UNASSIGNED.

AVO only assigns Aviation Color Codes and Alert Levels to volcanoes that have a local seismic monitoring network. Activity at Bogoslof has been detected using instruments from distant sites, thus we can not say authoritatively that the volcano has returned to its normal background state. However, we are no longer detecting any activity that would be considered to be indicative of unrest.

A resumption of eruptive activity is possible. It is likely that we would be able to detect significant explosive activity if it where to occur.
(12) Volcanic cloud height: None
