New Publication on Aniakchak Volcano Available Online

AVO would like to announce a new, richly-illustrated online publication that describes the volcanic geology and geochemistry of one of Alaska’s most spectacular volcanoes, Aniakchak! The USGS has just released Professional Paper 1810: Postglacial Eruptive History, Geochemistry, and Recent Seismicity of Aniakchak Volcano, Alaska Peninsula.

The report presents what is known about the recent eruptive history of this large, explosive volcano and interprets a large geochemical data set and recent seismic data collected by AVO to present a model of the Aniakchak magmatic system.

The full citation and web link to find the PDF copy of both the report and data tables are here.
