1-minute Mesoscale Domain Sector GOES-17 (GOES-West) “Red” Visible (0.64 µm) images (above) showed a hazy plume of resuspended volcanic ash — from the 1912 eruption of Novarupta-Katmai — moving southeastward then eastward across the Shelikof Strait toward Kodiak Island in southern Alaska on 08 April 2022.

The corresponding 1-minute GOES-17 Dust RGB images (below) displayed faint hues of magenta associated the plume — which appeared to increase somewhat around 00 UTC on 09 April.
