Schneider fills openings in the Web cam's housing. On Jan. 24, the housing and camera were cleaned, the camera was attached to the mount using parachute cord, the heat exchange vents were stuffed with bubble wrap and gray foam, and the housing was resealed.
The Web cam on Kodiak Island points toward Augustine's summit. Augustine erupted at 6:48 a.m. on Monday, an event that marked the fourth straight day of eruptions and generated an ash plume that reached almost five miles into the sky above Cook Inlet.
The west and north flanks of the Augustine Volcano are pictured during a Jan. 29 observation overflight. Steam and gas on the mid- and lower flanks is from a recent deposit of volcanic-induced fragments on the peak's north flank.
