IMAGE 13478
AVO Image

Portion of a topographic map of Pavlof Volcano (200 ft contour interval) showing two photo points (red dots) from which AVO’s Cyrus Read took images with an Infrared camera on August 18. The yellow line shows the approximate area of the active lava flow on the southeast flank of Pavlof; the yellow circle indicates the location of the vent or source for the lava flow and associated bursts of bombs, lava spatter, and ash. According to analysis by AVO’s Rick Wessels, the lava flow extends down the slope of the volcano about 580 m or about 4/10s of a mile. The vent for the current eruption is on a different side of the volcano than the vent for the last eruption in 1996. This is not unusual for Pavlof from eruption to eruption.
