Event Name : Martin 1953/2
|Start:||February 1953 ||Observed|Description:
|Eruption Type:||Not an eruption.|
Muller and others (1954) state that they believe the "eruptions reported as occurring simultaneously with Mount Trident's activity in February 1953" came from Mt. Martin, and also note that "During the second week of July  Mount Martin was observed to be steaming steadily and with moderate vigor, although its plume was less conspicuous than that of Trident. During this interval, only quiet steaming occurred at the crater near the crest of Mount Mageik."
However, Miller and others (1998) discount this eruption report, saying "all reports of eruption or ash emission are probably spurious, reflecting only the persistent and conspicuous steam plume. Steam emission is normally vigorous and continuous from the summit vent of Mount Martin with plumes occasionally rising 600 m above the vent and extending downwind for 20 km."
