Shishaldin Weekly Update issued Aug 8, 2014 12:37 Volcano Alert Level WATCH - Aviation Color Code ORANGE

Slightly elevated surface temperatures at Shishaldin’s summit crater were observed in satellite images on one day during the past week, although conditions were often mostly cloudy. A steam plume from the summit area was also observed occasionally in webcam images. These observations are consistent with low-level lava spatter and/or very hot vent conditions typical of the current eruption, which began in March 2014. Lava remains confined to the summit crater. No ash emissions have been observed in satellite data, and seismic activity continues at a very low level.
