Monday Mulligans

It has been rather quiet on the volcano-front in the last week. Redoubt and Llaima (in spanish), after a few weeks of intense eruption, are both back on Orange Alert. News of the eruptions from Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha’apai and Fernandina is rather sparse in the details. The news of volcanism in 2009 seems to…

Friday Flotsam

The weekend is rolling in and I might end up spending most of it in the 90+ degree California weather, so unless something big comes up (volcanically), I’ll leave you with a few news bits.

Redoubt with a prominent steam plume on April 7,2009. Image courtesy of Robert Cole/AVO Eruptions reader Brian just pointed out that AVO has posted a new webcam (well, a redirectly webcam) for the volcano and I thought it deserved its own post. This new angle gets you right up to the new dome forming on…

Just a quick note before I’m off to this … Llaima The SERNAGEOMIN is evaluating whether the alert level at Llaima should be lowered to Yellow in the near future (in spanish). Seismic acitivity at the volcano have come down since the eruptions started a few weeks ago and most of the activity now seems…

Things settling down at Redoubt

Redoubt from Ninilchik, AK. Image courtesy of Calvin Hall. It has been a few days since we’ve talked about Redoubt. Well, it might be because the volcano has settled down for the past week, to the point that AVO put the volcano back to Orange/Watch status last week and hasn’t had to go back to…

Image courtesy of AVO/USGS taken by Kristi Wallace showing the eruption plume on March 31, 2009. Today’s update will be relatively brief: AVO has returned Redoubt to Orange/Watch status after this weekend’s eruptions. The new dome continues to grow and this is accompanied by the usual volcanic seismicity associated with dome construction. We should expect…

Image courtesy of AVO/USGS by Cindy Koplin showing the ash fall in Homer, AK on 4/4/09 Not much new to report about the eruption at Redoubt beyond the fact that it continues. AVO has kept the warning level at Red/Warning after briefly dropping it to Orange/Watch on Friday night. The 15,000 foot / 5 km-tall…

Today looks to be a doubleheader of volcano news: Redoubt Image courtesy of AVO/USGS, taken by Rick Wessels. An infrared image of the north slope of Redoubt showing the hot, new dome material and hot block & ash flows confined to the valley. At 11:30 AM yesterday, AVO put Redoubt back to Orange/Watch alert status…

Image courtesy of AVO/USGS by James Isaak. Photo taken 3/31/2009. No, this isn’t Battlestar Galactica, but the same can be said for the Drift River Oil Terminal: this has all happened before and will all happen again. Coast Guard officials have (finally) decided to move ~6.3 million gallons of crude oil from the Chevron-owned Drift…
