Event Name : Chiginagak 1852
|Start:|| 1852 ||Observed|Description:
|Eruption Type:||Not an eruption.|
Coats (1950) reports that Chiginagak was smoking in 1852. Powers (1958) writes that Chiginagak was steaming, with intermittent smoke in 1852. Perhaps the original source for this event is Doroshin, who viewed Chiginagak in 1852 and described it as follows (J.B. Kisslinger translation, 1983): "This volcano, which I also saw rising from behind some mountains, has a broad crater, the southern side of which has been destroyed. Snow shows white within the crater. Smoke rises from the western slope of the mountain." This description is probably of the prominent fumaroles on Chiginagak and not a volcanic eruption.
