Last quote by Chris Waythomas

Some of the previous, historical eruptions have lasted many months. When you make pancakes, and you sprinkle water on your griddle, the water skates around on a film of vapor. If you break that vapor film down, and brought the water right into contact with the hot griddle, you'd produce a steam explosion. That's basically what's going on with Bogoslof. Once the vent really pushes above sea level, that might change the eruption dynamics. Then seawater will play less of a role, and it's just a function of how gassy the magmas are. That might herald the end.feedback
