Slow eruption of lava at Pavlof volcano, Alaska

Slow eruption of lava at Pavlof volcano, Alaska

Pavlof Volcano continues to erupt from the active vent on its east flank, just below the summit. The Aviation Color Code remains at Orange. Previous eruptions of Pavlof indicate that the level of unrest can change quickly and the progression to more significant eruptive activity can occur with little or no warning.

Earthquake swarm beneath Kamaʻehuakanaloa (Lōʻihi) seamount likely the result of magma movement, Hawai’i

Earthquake swarm beneath Kamaʻehuakanaloa (Lōʻihi) seamount likely the result of magma movement, Hawai’i

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) has detected increased seismic activity beneath Kamaʻehuakanaloa (formerly known as Lōʻihi) seamount, south of the Island of Hawaiʻi over the past few days. The activity is likely the result of magma movement beneath Kamaʻehuakanaloa seamount and currently shows no sign of leading to an eruption. The last eruption at this volcano took place in 1996 (VEI 0).

Earthquake swarm detected in the vicinity of Edgecumbe volcano, U.S.

m of earthquakes has been detected in the vicinity of Mount Edgecumbe volcano, beginning at about 10:00 UTC on April 11, 2022. The cause of the swarm is currently unknown. A small number of earthquakes were also recorded in 2020 but this swarm is unusual in the number of events. The last eruption of this volcano was in 2220 BCE (± 100 years).

Increased rate of uplift near South Sister volcano, Oregon

Cascades Volcano Observatory geophysicists have detected a subtle increase in the rate of uplift of the ground surface about 5 km (3 miles) west of South Sister volcano, Oregon, U.S. Episodes of increased uplift have been observed in this area before, and the…

Lava flow field at Great Sitkin grows to more than 1.3 square km, Alaska

Lava flow field at Great Sitkin grows to more than 1.3 square km, Alaska

Seismicity at Great Sitkin volcano continues at low but above background levels and satellite data shows elevated surface temperatures. In addition, new SAR images from DLR show the lava flow field has grown to more than 1.3 km2 (0.5 mi2). The SE edge seems to have…

Earthquake swarm under Davidof volcano, U.S.

Due to the possibility of escalating volcanic events associated with a swarm of earthquakes in the vicinity of Davidof volcano in Alaska, the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) has raised the Aviation Color Code and the Volcano Alert Level for Davidof volcano to…

Ground deformation at Okmok volcano suggests shallow magma intrusion, U.S.

Ground deformation at Okmok volcano suggests shallow magma intrusion, U.S.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) has observed a change from the long-term deformation pattern at Okmok volcano as measured by two continuous Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) stations within the caldera between September and November 2021. The…
