From article in OP:
A second Alaska volcano began heating up Monday. Pavlof Volcano, 625 miles from Anchorage, does have seismic instruments, which picked up tremors
signaling a possible eruption. Satellite imagery also showed a lot of heat in the mountain.
Picked up tremors signaling a possible eruption? Yeah? Is that right...
Cause I pulled raw data back to 5/6/13 from three working stations at Pavlof, went over them with spectro, and I completely disagree with that
There MIGHT be a couple of long period (and not really all that long) events, but even those I question with the lack of highs present- meaning, they
could be deep events- or they aren't events from there at all- or they are cultural noise. But ready to erupt? That's an outright fabrication in my
opinion. There is no where near enough seismic activity to indicate that from what I saw.
So.... Sorry, show me the money. Puter, you might want to pull some raw data yourself, and perhaps we can finally agree on something.
Little Sitkin volcano was one of those cut, and it has showed WAY more seismic activity. Granted, it probably isn't as much of a threat as Pavlof,
because it is so far out. But same for Iliamna- plenty of activity that came and went- and neither has erupted.
I hate the budget cuts too- screamed about it before, for those following my threads- but come on guys, Pavlof, ready to erupt? No. Just...no. Show
me. Someone's looking at waveforms maybe, because there are some signatures that can fool you that look like long tremors. But in spectro they are
bunk. Very little low frequencies between 2-4 Hz, (ok maybe some), but they are not accompanied by high frequency, showing they are local. I see
signatures like this all the time. I don't know what they are thinking up there.
So I have either denied my ignorance for the day, or made a fool out of myself... Puter, you figure it out...
