What 40,000 to 60,000 tons of SO2 per day looks like

27 sq miles covered up and continuing.  Watch to the end for a feel of the size.

Thanks for sharing.

Amazing what the earth can do.

Some things we need to view from a distance.

Alaska volcano as ash cloud reaches 30,000 feet

The National Weather Service on Saturday warned airplanes to avoid airspace near an erupting Alaska volcano as it spewed ash 30,000 feet above sea level.

Winds were blowing ash from Pavlof Volcano to the west and southwest.

Pavlof began erupting, pushing lava out from a vent near its summit, on Wednesday. On Friday, the ash cloud reached 16,000 feet.

The eruption intensified at 6 a.m. Saturday, sending the ash cloud higher, said Dave Schneider, a geophysicist at Alaska Volcano Observatory.

It's not clear how long this eruption will last, Schneider said. Pavlof's eruptions may last for weeks or months with varying levels of intensity, he said.

Pavlof is Alaska's most active volcano and is located about 625 miles southwest of Anchorage. It's had more than 40 recorded eruptions, including earlier this year and last year.

It also lies along popular international air routes connecting Europe, North America and Asia.
