Makushin reported activity





Event Name : Makushin 1938/6

Start:June 1938 ± 3 MonthsObserved

Tephra plume: BibCard BibCard
Eruption Type:Explosive
MaxVEI: 2 BibCard

Description: Coats (1950) reports an ash eruption from Makushin in October, 1938. However, the Anchorage Daily Times, in October 1938 reports that the Coast and Geodetic Survey was in the Aleutian Islands during the summer of 1938, and that the crew reported "the most violent eruption with great clouds of smoke rising from its crater." Therefore it seems likely that the previously cited October date for this eruption is inaccurate and that the observed volcanic activity actually took place sometime during the summer.
