IMAGE 133761
AVO Image

This false color ESA Sentinel-2 image of Veniaminof from Saturday, 6 October 2018, shows continued lava effusion and a plume with a thin tephra deposit beneath headed off to the north. The flow remains ~1 km in length with the most active front on the east side, which has a SWIR (short wave infrared) anomaly extending all of the way to the flow front. A branch in the channel feeding the western lobes appears to be active, as well, but without any SWIR anomaly near the flow front, suggesting that this western branch is less active. The eastern flow front is producing the strongest steam plume.
