Chiginagak reported activity



Event Name : Chiginagak 2000/12

Start:December 2000 Observed

Fumarolic or hydrothermal activity: BibCard
Steam: BibCard
Eruption Type:Not an eruption.

Description: From Neal and others (2004): "In late December 2000, Navigation Officer Daniel Karlson contacted AVO to report observations of steaming from Chiginagak Volcano in late July and early August during NOAA operations off the Pacific coastline of the Alaska Peninsula. By their estimate, the steaming emanated from a source at approximately 5,200 ft (1,580 m) on the north flank of the volcano, approximately the position of the well-known fumarole long described for Chiginagak. Karlson noted that the cloud was white and constant much of the time, with a few episodes of increased output that extended 'several miles' downwind. He reported that the activity appeared to diminish in intensity over time, ceasing altogether in early August."
