A beautiful clear day on Cook Inlet today, and some wonderful views on the various webcams that the Alaska Volcano Observatory has trained on Mount Redoubt. The zooming in of the Hut Webcam on the area of the extruding lava dome is particularly stunning. The dark mass in the upper middle of the image is the lava dome, looking sinister as lava domes always do:
The more conventional Hut Webcam view is also beautiful today:
The DFR Webcam is giving a lovely crystal-clear image:
And finally the Cook Inlet camera gives a nice wide vista of the erupting volcano:
The news from Redoubt is not itself dramatic. The eruption is continuing, the lava dome is building, there is a thermal anomaly at the dome and a continuous, low but vigorous steam plume.
