Keeping Tabs on the Volcanoes of the Last Frontier

An Update from the Alaska Volcano Observatory

By Michelle Coombs, USGS Research Geologist

Scientist-in-Charge, Alaska Volcano Observatory

• Did you know Alaska is home to the most of the Nation's active and potentially active volcanoes, with three currently erupting?

• Eruptions in Alaska range in style and size from small events at remote volcanoes to the largest of the 20th century -- the Katmai-Novarupta eruption of 1912.

• Learn how the Alaska Volcano Observatory provides warnings of hazards from eruptions -- most notably volcanic ash, which poses hazards to Alaskan Communities and to aviation.
