(10) Summit Elevation: 5118 ft (1560 m)
(11) Volcanic Activity Summary: Over the past several weeks the real-time seismic data stream at Westdahl volcano has ceased due to equipment problems in the field. Repairs are not feasible during the winter months. Without seismic data AVO cannot verify that the volcano is at its normal background state. Thus, the Aviation Color Code and Volcano Alert Levels are now UNASSIGNED.

Planned field work in April and during the summer will reestablish and improve the seismic monitoring network. At this time, rapid detection of an eruption (if one were to occur) may be possible using a combination of distant seismic and infrasound networks, lightning, and satellite data.
