The scientists are baffled by the volume of lava still rising out of the volcano after 15 months into the current eruption. Some feel that the catastrophic eruption was so large that it may just now be ready to end.

They say that usually a volcano clears it's conduit for a few months before going inactive but the volume of lava suggests it has gone beyond that and is being fed from much deeper down. This has not been accompanied by any large quakes or large ash release since march and that is very unusual.

Please use this link to go to a great panoramic shot of the volcano taken on the 12th of dec..Put your curser on the mountain pic and you can pan close.

Spirit Lake, which was destroyed in the 1980 eruption, has reformed and can be seen at the far right. Notice the dirty ash snow near the edge of the crater.
