Great Sitkin reported activity





Event Name : Great Sitkin 1760

This is a questionable event.

Start: 1760 Observed

Active; type of activity not specified: BibCard BibCard BibCard BibCard
Eruption Type:Other

Description: Grewingk (1850, translated 2003 by Fritz Jaensch) reports that Tolstykh and Baikov reported Mt. Moffet active in 1760. However, Mt. Moffet does not appear to have had any historical eruptions, and perhaps the eruption was from Great Sitkin instead (Hantke, 1951; Simkin and Siebert, 1994; Fournelle and others, 1994; and Waythomas and others, 2003).
