Striking At The Root

Vigorous Steaming Observed at Alaska’s Explosive Pavlof Volcano — Alert Levels Raised

A seismic tremor and substantial steam plumes have been observed at Alaska’s Pavlof stratovolcano, the most active volcano of the Aleutian arc., resulting in the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) raising the Alert Level to Yellow/Advisory on Weds, May 15.

The low-frequency tremor was observed on May 14 and was followed by violent plumes of steam.

“This represents an increase from background activity and we are increasing the Aviation Color Code and Alert Level to YELLOW/ADVISORY,” AVO said in a statement released May 15.

Pavlof is a powerful stratovolcano and notorious for not giving much warning before blowing.

It has a very long eruptive history, peppered with VEI 2’s and 3’s.

The last eruption took place in 2016 and registered as a 2 on the VEI.

The most recent VEI 3’s occurred in May 2013, and May 2014, according to volcano.si.edu — Pavlof is certainly one to watch.

UPTICK

Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.

The recent global uptick in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, a waning magnetosphere, and the increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
