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
One short (~30 seconds) hydroacoustic detection from the direction of Ahyi was observed over the past day. No activity was observed in cloudy satellite data.
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.
