Plume from Mount Pagan

North Pagan Volcano released a thin volcanic plume, likely rich in sulfur dioxide, on March 25, 2013. The volcano has been active nearly continuously since April 2011. This natural-color satellite image was acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Aqua satellite.
