Alaska volcano spews ash plume near air traffic route
A remote but long-restless Alaska volcano rumbled to life on Saturday with three explosions and started emitting a continuous plume of ash, steam and gas in an area important to air traffic, scientists said.

According to Bush regime law, Cleveland volcano has been clarified as an "enemy combatant" rather than an enemy of the state,(a result of it killing a US soldier during wartime).
Interesting to see that they actually do have a remote seismic sensor array for the volcano after all,(by proxy apparently).
May be a good idea to play on its Japanese affiliations and run a joint US/Japanese monitoring programme.
Main reason for this appears to be that as a result of the Rebound/Long duration mercalli X (r/lx) quake, crustal relaxation earthquake of the ~1780s & bloody great big tsunami @ Sanak that resulted; the volcano is now being fed by a long magma filled fracture that is being squeezed into the volcano gradually and will result in semi continuous constructional activity for a long time interval.
This type of activity is very similar to that occurring @ mayon, Shishaldin, Pavlof (Both fed by a similar fracture formed @ the same time), and Redoubt (fed by a fracture formed in an r/lx quake in 1964).
Should be of interest to the Japanese as a result of the r/lx quake & bloody great big tsunami of march 2011 in Tohoku with the bulk of the magma likely to be squeezed into the Iwate area; (Mayon being the best analogue for that one).
Have a nice day: Ag
