A lava dome, seen here in November 1971, was emplaced in the summit crater at end of an eruption that lasted from November 1970 to March 1971. Emplacement of the dome was accompanied by pyroclastic avalanches down the west flank. The eruption included explosive activity and emission of a lava flow down the east flank.
