Record #197980:

August 2008 eruption of Kasatochi volcano, Aleutian Islands, Alaska: resettling an island landscape / William E. Scott, and 3 others.

Title: August 2008 eruption of Kasatochi volcano, Aleutian Islands, Alaska: resettling an island landscape / William E. Scott, and 3 others.
Author(s): Scott, William E.
Date: 2010.
In: Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research. (2010.), Vol. 42(3) (2010)
Abstract: Describes eruption of Kasatochi Island, subaerial portion of small volcano in western Aleutian volcanic arc, on 7-8 August 2008. Pyroclastic flows and surges swept island repeatedly and buried most of it and near-shore zone in deposits. Eruption radically changed island's landscape to condition not extant since similar eruption occurred several centuries ago. Several important auklet nesting sites in taluses were buried or plugged. Post-eruption evolution of island includes continuing erosion of 2008 deposits on flanks, retreating sea cliffs in pyroclastic fans and aprons (chiefly in northern part of island), and accretion of beaches (chiefly in southern part).
