Event Name : Wrangell 2000/3

Start:March 18, 2000 Observed

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

Description: From Neal and others (2004): "AVO received word from a Trans Alaska Pipeline worker of an unusually strong, white steam

plume from Wrangell between 0500 and 0600 AST on March 18, 2000. Later that day, a National Park Service employee in Kenny Lake reported robust steaming over the past month from multiple sources on the southwest flank of the volcano, between approximately 2,000-5,000 feet (600-1,500 m) below the summit. AVO found no anomalies in satellite imagery related in time to either report and concluded that no significant unrest had occurred."
