Volcanic Activity Summary:
The recent period of eruptive activity at Pavlof Volcano that began on May 13, 2016 has ended. Minor ash emissions were last observed on May 16. Since then, we have not detected seismic signals associated with ash emission or lava effusion. Satellite observations show no evidence for eruptive activity. Thus AVO is lowering the Aviation color code and Volcano Alert Level to YELLOW/ADVISORY.
The volcano remains in a heightened state of unrest. Pauses in eruptive activity of days to weeks are common during eruptive episodes of Pavlof Volcano. A return to eruptive activity remains possible and could occur with little or no warning. Thus, AVO will continue to monitor the volcano closely and will issue additional information as necessary.
