AVO Cleveland ORANGE/WATCH - No significant activity in seismic, infrasound or satellite data.

22 May 17:09 | SciTech

May 22, 2017 20:31 - No significant activity was observed in cloudy satellite and images, and no activity was detected in seismic or infrasound data over the past day. A steam and gas plume was observed in web camera images of the summit this morning. Cleveland volcano is monitored with a limited real-time seismic network, which inhibits AVO's ability to detect precursory unrest that may lead to an explosive eruption. Rapid detection of an ash-producing eruption may be possible using a combination of seismic, infrasound, lightning, and satellite data. read more »
