8004 26 Apr 2018 @ 1127 --- Micah Kipple It's having very frequent splashing 10-20 cm but am only entering true jetting eruptions.
4171 31 May 2017 @ 1200 --- kc Arsenic was on and off all afternoon with durations ranging from 1 to 5 minutes.
3987 21 Apr 2017 @ 0956 21 Apr 2017 @ 1022 MAB Appears to start, but never reaches full height. Not closed intervals as it was very steamy and I was walking around the lower loop.
2398 21 Sep 2015 @ 0930 21 Sep 2015 @ 1410 MAB Burbling and looking pre-eruptive for 4 hours, no eruption seen. Same for the afternoon visit from 1641 - 1750
2380 18 Sep 2015 @ 0603 --- MAB I had a good handle on Arsenic pre-disturbance. It has skunked me the last 4 visits, sometimes burbling and looking quite pre-eruptive. Jake may have seen the last one for a while! I will start noting the burbles that are about 4" and see if they fit the interval pattern from earlier this month. I hope I am just unlucky and am missing them.
