From Neal and McGimsey (1997): "AVO detected a plume-like cloud with a negative Band 4-5 signature on an AVHRR image of Unimak Island on the morning of March 1, 1996. Subsequent analysis with NWS colleagues and lack of any confirmation of an eruption by pilots let to the conclusion that the cloud was meterologic in nature. The cloud suggested possible activity at Westdahl, which makes up much of the southwest portion of Unimak Island, 50 miles west of False Pass and 125 miles northeast of Akutan."
