  • More amazing photos of the eruption here.

    April 8, 2009

  • Skip: Thank heavens. I was getting worried.

    April 1, 2009

  • Right, gangerh. I've always pronounced the word with emphasis on the second syllable. As in redoubtable. I guess this is a US/UK thing.

  • Here in Yorkshire The Redoubt pub is pronounced 'Tha Ridout'.

    March 31, 2009

  • "Readout" is correct, yarb.

    C_B: Bears of any stripe (or no stripe) can always find a home in Alaska.

    Reesetee: If a place requires reservations, I usually don't go there. Skinny Dick's is not such a place.


    March 31, 2009

  • So do I.

    March 31, 2009

  • Well, golly gosh.

    March 31, 2009

  • I do.

    March 31, 2009

  • You really pronounce it like readout?

    March 31, 2009

  • I'm sure Alaska has room for one more bear, bear.

    March 30, 2009

  • Goddammit. *is jealous*

    March 30, 2009

  • Oh, right! Well in that case, let Redoubt blow!

    Wait. This place takes reservations??

    March 30, 2009

  • No fair rethinking your trip, reesetee. I've already made reservations at Skinny Dick's.

    March 30, 2009

  • Locally it's pronounced REE doubt.

    March 30, 2009

  • Do you say Mount Re-doubt or Mount reh-Doubt?

    March 30, 2009

  • Wow. Those SEM images are especially amazing.

    *is rethinking trip to Alaska in June*

    March 27, 2009

  • More excellent (updated) photos, including some amazing micrographs of ash particles, here.

    March 27, 2009

  • Glad to hear you dodged this one, skip. Thanks for the photos!

    March 25, 2009

  • Awesome (in its truest sense) pics, skip. Thanks!

    March 23, 2009

  • All is well, but I'm glad I don't have to fly anywhere today. Planes are grounded because of the ash cloud.

    If we get any ashfall, (unlikely this far north) I'll try and collect some for you.

    EDIT: Some good hi-res images here.

    March 23, 2009

  • "Alaska's Mount Redoubt erupts"--skip, I hope you and yours are safe.

    March 23, 2009

  • Thanks for that link, skip. Yarb, good luck on that trip--it sounds like a great experience!

    January 31, 2009

  • Will do. I didn't know you could fly to the lower 48 from Fairbanks. The company I work for has a large operation, with its own airstrip, not far from Kotzebue, about 30 miles inland. I don't know if they would fly us out via Fairbanks in the event of Anchorage being ashed-out, or just leave us there 'til the plume dissipated - I suspect the latter. We have a smaller operation in the vicinity of Fairbanks, too, but I don't know if I'll ever be called upon to go there. I'm looking forward to this trip - I've been to AK before but not beyond Anchorage.

    January 31, 2009

  • You never know, Yarb. There are flights to the lower 48 that originate in Fairbanks (too far north for most ash clouds) so you might be rebooked.

    I've just got to know what you'll be doing that far north. It's...ummm...winter up there.

    But hey--if you get rerouted to Fairbanks, let me know.

    January 31, 2009

  • I'm scheduled to fly into Anchorage a week today, and out again (way up to the north in the Arctic Circle) the day after. What I want to know is, if Redoubt pops after I leave Anchorage, will the ash have cleared enough for me to fly back from the arctic 10 days later?

    January 31, 2009

  • I've actually seen Redoubt erupt twice before. It's a spectacular sight--not much in the way of lava, but enormous quantities of steam and ash.

    It's near Anchorage, and the ash plume usually results in the ceasing of all air traffic to most of Alaska since most of it goes through there. I've seen two other eruptions from volcanoes near Redoubt--Spurr and St. Augustine.

    The Alaska Volcano Observatory keeps pretty close tabs on imminent eruptions. It's a fun site to monitor.

    January 31, 2009

  • Yikes! Skipvia, you okay up there??

    P.S. I'm coming to your state in June. :-)

    January 31, 2009

  • Volcano to erupt soon in AK. Click second square for more (The Free Dictionary). Two other mts with same name are in Banff and WA.
