Event Name : Akutan 1828This is a questionable event.
|Start:|| 1828 ||Observed|
Grewingk (1850, translated 2003 by Fritz Jaensch) writes that Postels [Russian naturalist aboard the Seniavin] reported Akutan smoking and having hot springs in 1828. Dall (1870) writes: "Little Sitkin, Akun, Akutan, Tanak-Angunakh, Atka, Koniushi, Goreloi, and Shishaldin smoked. The same disturbances continued for two years." This sentence appears to say that all of these volcanoes smoked for two years, which was probably not the case, according to the earlier statements found in Grewingk, which states that Shishaldin smoked for multiple years and doesn't say that Akutan smoked beyond 1828. However, some successive compilers since Dall, including Plummer (1898) and Jacob and Hauksson (1983), state that Akutan was in eruption for two years.
