SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: USGS Ash Fall Report OMB Control Number: 1028–NEW Abstract: The USGS provides warnings and notification to the public of volcanic activity in the U.S. in order to reduce the loss of life, property, and economic and societal impacts. USGS will use reports entered in real time by respondents of ash fall in their local area to correct or refine ash fall forecasts as the ash cloud moves downwind. Retrospectively these reports will enable USGS to improve their ash fall models and further research into eruptive processes. This project will create a database module and web interface allowing the public and Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) staff to enter reports of ash fall in their local area in real time and retrospectively following an eruptive event. Users browsing the AVO Web site during eruptions will be directed towards a web form allowing them to fill in ash fall information and submit the information to AVO. The ash fall report database will help AVO track eruption clouds and associated fallout downwind. These reports from the public will also give scientists a more complete record of the PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 amount and duration and other conditions of ash fall. Getting first-hand accounts of ash fall will support model ash fall development and interpretation of satellite imagery. Knowing the locations from which ash-fall reports have been filed will improve ash fall warning messages, AVO Volcanic Activity Notifications, and make fieldwork more efficient. AVO staff will be able to condense and summarize the various ash fall reports and forward that information on to emergency management agencies and the wider public. Frequency: On occasion, after each ash fall event during eruptions Description of Respondents: Individuals affected by a volcanic ash fall events each year (if an eruption occurs). Estimated Total Number of Annual Responses: 575 Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 78 Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Non-Hour Cost’’ Burden: We estimate the non-hour cost burden to be $14.15 per respondent. Although not required, we estimate 50 respondents on an annual basis may voluntarily take and submit an ash fall sample. We suggest supplies on our Web site for respondents to use to assist them with their collection. Most respondents are likely to already possess the items so the true non-hour cost burden is likely to be lower. Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor and you are not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Comments: On June 11, 2012, we published a Federal Register Notice (77 FR 34400) announcing that we would submit this information collect to OMB for approval. The notice provided a 60day public commenting period ending on August 20, 2012. We did not receive any comments in response to that notice.
