Small Explosion Detected At Cleveland Volcano

By | October 4, 2013 - 4:20 pm

False-color composite image of Cleveland volcano collected by Landsat-8 on July 26, 2013. This image is a composite of the short-wave infrared data (to show thermal emissions) and high temperatures in the summit crater as shown as a small red region (indicated by the arrow). These hot temperatures are likely due to the extrusion of a small lava dome.Credit Dave Schneider
