U.S. Geological Survey
Tuesday, December 6, 2022, 12:19 PM ChST (Tuesday, December 6, 2022, 02:19 UTC)


Report prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey.



AHYI SEAMOUNT VOLCANO (VNUM #284141)
20°25'12" N 145°1'48" E, Summit Elevation -449 ft (-137 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW

No volcanic activity was detected in satellite images or the Wake Island hydrophone sensors from Ahyi volcano. However, volcanic unrest maybe continuing undetected.

There are no local monitoring stations near Ahyi Seamount, which limits our ability to detect and characterize volcanic unrest there. We will continue to monitor available remote hydrophonic, seismic, and satellite data closely.
