Trident reported activity



Event Name : Trident 1949/6

This is a questionable event.

Start:June 1949 Observed

Active; type of activity not specified: BibCard
Eruption Type:Explosive

Description: From Eicher and Rounsefell (1957): "A few weeks later [after May 19, 1949] nearby Mt. Trident erupted, and it has exhibited sporadic activity almost to the present, although without significant ash outfall."

However, Hildreth (1983) disbelieves this account: "Published compilations notwithstanding, there are no credible reports of historic eruptions in the Katmai group except at Novarupta in 1912 and at Trident in 1953 - 1968."
