Kupreanof reported activity



Event Name : Kupreanof 2015/4

Start:April 11, 2015 Observed
Stop:April 11, 2015 Observed

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

Description: From Dixon and others, 2017: "A mariner report of 'black smoke northwest of Ivanof Bay' was received at AVO on April 11, 2015. The probable source of the observation is Kupreanof Volcano where a known fumarolic field has persisted for decades (Yount and others, 1985b). Although reports from Kupreanof are uncommon, steaming from Kupreanof has been noted for at least the last 75 years and was last reported in the AVO annual summaries in 1994 (Neal and others, 1995). AVO took no further action on this isolated report."
