Washington University seismologists Patrick Shore, Brian White, and Sara Pozgay were fortunate to witness the eruption of the Anatahan volcano on May 11, 2003 - just days after they had installed a seismic station there. Although ash covered the site, it continued to operate fine until Patrick Shore revisited the island on May 21 to clear the ash and download the data. The following links cite many interesting aspects of this eruption.
