Martin reported activity




Event Name : Martin 2005/2

Start:February 26, 2005 Observed
Stop:February 26, 2005 Observed

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

Description: From McGimsey and others (2007): "On February 26 [2005], AVO received from the Center Weather Service Unit (CWSU) several pilot reports of a steam cloud rising to 12,000 ft (3,360 m) from Katmai. An inspection of the webicorders, spectrograms, and satellite logs revealed nothing unusual. Because Katmai Volcano does not have active fumaroles, the reported activity was attributed to nearby Mounts Mageik or Martin, both of which have active fumaroles that frequently produce noticeable steam plumes. Nonvolcanic meterological phenomena that commonly are mistaken for volcanic activity also are common in this area."
