In this 3 August 1993 photo a small ash plume rises from a scoria cone within the Veniaminof caldera. Intermittent explosive eruptions began on 30 July and continued for more than a year. The eruptions also formed a new cone SE of the main western cone. As during the 1983-84 eruption, lava flows erupted onto the ice-covered caldera floor. Ash darkens the left side of the caldera floor in this view, with the caldera wall in the background.  Photo by D. Sellers, 1993 (Alaska Department of Fish and Game).
