Kasatochi reported activity



This is a questionable event.

Start: 1760 Observed

Active; type of activity not specified: BibCard
Eruption Type:Other
MaxVEI: 0 BibCard

Description: Grewingk (1850, translated 2003 by Fritz Jaensch) writes that in 1760, Koniuji island was rising.

Coats (1950) attributes historical eruptions of Koniuji to Kasatochi instead, because Koniuji is "deeply eroded" and "does not appear to have been active in Recent time." Lending credence to this thought is Bergsland's (1959, p. 35) publication which records the Aleut place name of Kasatochi as "qana-tanar" = which island, as in "which island is it that is emerging out there."
