Shishaldin reported activity





Event Name : Shishaldin 1994/10

This is a questionable event.

Start:October 4, 1994 Observed

Steam: BibCard
Tephra plume: BibCard
Central eruption: BibCard
Eruption Type:Explosive

Description: From Neal and others (1995): "Satellite image [of Shishaldin Volcano] shows plume-like cloud on 5-23-94; subsequently confirmed to be meteorological. Possible ash eruption on 10-4-94; pilot report of steam plume 3 km (9,840 ft) above the volcano with minor amounts of ash.

"* * * A plume-like image was recognized on an AVHRR satellite image prompting NWS to issue a SIGMET on the night of May 23, 1994. There were no pilot confirmations of any eruption and it is likely that this feature was a meteorologically enhanced fumarolic cloud."
