This weak, pulsating ash plume at Veniaminof, Alaska, on 7 October 1983 is being directed to the east by local winds. Dark ash deposits are visible on the cone and glacier, and a lava flow was traveling down the flank. Photo by Betsy Yount, 1983 (Alaska Volcano Observatory, U.S. Geological Survey).
