Incandescence from strombolian activity at Klyuchevskoy volcano this morning
Monday, Jan 26, 2015
The eruptive activity has weakened a bit, but remains near-continuous. Small ash emissions from strombolian activity occurred yesterday and bright glow from this activity illuminates the volcano's summit at night. ... [more]
Significant ash emissions were observed again this morning. Tokyo VAAC reported a plume extending 20 nautical miles to the SW, at estimated 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude. [more]
Intermittent ash emissions continue. A plume at 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude was detected extending SSE on satellite imagery this morning (Tokyo VAAC). [more]
Explosion at Shiveluch this morning. Note the incandescent deposits of glowing bombs on the flanks and inside (along with lightning?) the eruption column.
A strong vulcanian-type explosion occurred this morning. An ash plume rose to approx. 25,000 ft (7.5 km) altitude and a pyroclastic flow seems to have descended to the SE. [more]
