IMAGE 181351
AVO Image

Eruption of lava at Pavlof captured in this WorldView-3 image from January 19, 2022. A scoria cone is visible and steaming in a vent on the eastern flank of the volcano. An active lava flow is spilling out, extending 1.3 km east. Meltwater from interaction between the lava and snow and ice is then producing lahars that extend beyond the lava flow up to 4.4 km east from the vent. Minor ash deposits are also visible as dark streaks on the snow emanating from near the front of the lava flow, where steam generation is likely producing weak explosive activity.
