Chiginagak reported activity



Event Name : Chiginagak 1929/3

This is a questionable event.

Start:March 1929 Observed

Active; type of activity not specified: BibCard BibCard
Fumarolic or hydrothermal activity: BibCard BibCard
Eruption Type:Explosive

Description: Jaggar (1932): "A mountain to the west of Kanatak was reported fuming in March 1929, and this description might apply to Chiginagak."

However, Miller and others (1998) report that the 1929 eruption of Chiginagak was "based on a brief newspaper account of "unusual activity" at Chiginagak and 6 other volcanoes observed by the crew of a ship which probably passed no closer than 25 km." The December 14, 1929 Associated Press article does not provide further information on Chiginagak, except to say that it is "also on the mainland near Katmai."

Simkin and Siebert (1994) report the eruption as a questionable eruption in December, 1929.
