Alaska’s Bogoslof Volcano Eruptions

Alaska’s Bogoslof Volcano, which is located about 850 miles south of Anchorage, has been very active in the past few months. In the past three months, the volcano has erupted 36 times, with the explosion on March 4 being the largest. This particular explosion sent ash over 35,000 feet in the air and a nearby town of Dutch Harbor was warned to be on the look out for “trace amounts” of ash settling on the ground. While nobody was injured or killed in these eruptions, volcanic ash that is rocketed into the atmosphere can interfere with flight paths or even the mechanics of an airplane itself. The ash can also pose a problem to health in nearby cities, as ash and dirt in the air can be detrimental to both human and animal bodies.
