I called it first! Not in any psychic way ...

Maybe you can ask for points on your space junk/satellite thread ... If only you'd talked about their potential risk of a collision

Actually I think AVO and every other informed person called it.. Very little chance this puppy would NOT go off :-) considering the history of this amazing mountain.. Redoubt will, more than likely, go off again soon..or..quiet down and call it an eruption. Time will tell..

I and my car visited N. OR when Mt. St. Helens blew and the ash in air filters becomes a real problem, hope the folks in AL have a few air filters around. I wonder if electric cars would be better in an ash storm although not being so heavy they may not be so great on snowy roads.

I made a video with sound from NCT and DFR seismic stations of the sixth eruption/explosion of Redoubt Volcano:

Hmm... in the last few dozen minutes the trace spectrum of the closest stations to the summit of the volcano (I'm speaking mainly of REF though) has changed to something which looks like rock cracking at a high frequency rate. This could mean that pressure is building up inside the volcano again and that a new explosion may occur soon.

Of course, it's just my 2 cents.

lol touche.

But, I called it in a timeline. EAsy to say it is gonna go off. It is a volcanoe after all. But much harder to predict in a timeline.

I have a silly question. Please dont poke fun..

but when they say ash rises 60k feet. Is that from sea level or from the top of the volcanoe? or is there an option C?

Nevermind, found the answer, it is sea level.

How high is the summit?

Ash plume heights are ASL - above sea level.
It's also specified on official reports.

EDIT
As a sidenote, REF is getting bumpier as time passes:

Latest status report by AVO


REDOUBT VOLCANO (CAVW #1103-03-)
60°29'7" N 152°44'38" W, Summit Elevation 10197 ft (3108 m)
Current Aviation Color Code: RED
Current Volcano Alert Level: WARNING


Redoubt remains at Aviation Color Code RED and Alert Level WARNING. Seismic activity at the volcano is currently relatively low, and no activity is observed in partly cloudy web camera images. Pilot reports and satellite images indicate that a steam plume is currently rising to at least 20,000 ft asl and drifting at least 40 miles to the northwest. We have no indication that the volcano is currently emitting ash, though explosive activity could resume with little or no warning.

The last explosive event occurred last night (March 23) at 7:41 pm (AKDT) and lasted for roughly seventeen minutes. The top of the ash cloud was estimated to have reached at least 50,000 ft above sea level based on National Weather Service radar. Winds in the vicinity of the volcano carried the ash cloud primarily to the west and north. Pyroclastic flows were visible traveling down the volcano's north flank in web camera images. Last night's explosive event was the sixth thus far since explosive activity began Sunday, March 22 at 10:38 PM AKDT.

Yesterday, AVO staff visited the area around Redoubt by helicopter to assess conditions and repair equipment damaged by Sunday night's eruptions. They fixed the telemetry link at AVO's observation hut, which is once again transmitting images from the web camera and data from a GPS and two seismic instruments. Clouds obscured the summit, but observers reported very large lahar and flood deposits in the Drift River Valley that likely occurred during and/or following the first five explosions. These flows, which contained ice, water, mud, and other debris, inundated the Drift River Valley and traveled more than 35 km, reaching Cook Inlet. In the middle to upper Drift River Valley, high-water marks reached 6-8 meters above the valley floor. At the AVO hut (roughly 7 miles NNW of the summit), a 6-cm thick fall deposit was observed.

A gas-measurement flight is currently en route to the volcano.

AVO remains staffed 24 hours per day will issue further information as it becomes available.

For up-to-date Ashfall Advisories and wind trajectories, please refer to the National Weather Service website: pafc.arh.noaa.gov...

No, I am about 3.5 hours drive from the best vantage point. That photo was from the hut camera on the AVO site. I've seen it often before though. The views from the Kenai Penninsula are some of the most spectacular on Earth. The best views are down by Homer.

If I get a good clear day on a day off, I'll probably slip down that way with a long lens and see what I can get.

Here is a crop from one I took of Augustine with a steam plume after it erupted a couple of years ago. The Ocean is completely covered with clouds and I'm above them on a point just outside Homer. This is part of the original which is Augustine floating in a sea of clouds during a spectacular sunset. The Internet truly does not do dynamic photo's justice though.

Right click and click "view image" to see it.
