Scientist Explains Challenges of Monitoring Alaskan Volcanoes

Wednesday, May 22 2013

When volcanoes spring to life in Alaska, aviators and residents rely on the Alaska Volcano Observatory for information.

The AVO is a partnership between the United States Geological Survey, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the State of Alaska.

KUCB's Vic Fisher spoke with John Power, the scientist in charge of the AVO, about what the agency's doing to keep up with Pavlof Volcano on the Alaska Peninsula.
