Bezymianny volcano (Kamchatka): increased seismic activity, eruption warning

Wednesday Jun 18, 2014 15:13 PM | BY: T

KVERT raised the alert level of the volcano to orange because increased seismic activity has been detected recently. The last major eruption of the volcano was an explosion on 1 Sep 2012.
According to the Russian volcanologists, this seismicity could suggest that fresh magma started to rise within the volcano and/or a new phase of lava extrusion has already started at the summit. This process which is often accompanied by explosive activity (when gasses inside the fresh very viscous magma are trapped and accumulate to build up pressure).
In addition, the fact that the volcano has been more or less quiet for almost two years could suggest the presence of a solid plug currently clogging the conduit, in which case a larger explosion that clears it is a realistic scenario.

Wednesday, Jan 22, 2014
KVERT reports "no detectable seismicity. Moderate gas-steam activity was observed. Satellite data showed the volcano was quiet." [more]
Thursday, Jan 02, 2014
Weak seismic activity of the volcano continues. According to video data, a moderate gas-steam activity was observed. Satellite data showed a weak thermal anomaly over the volcano (KVERT daily reports). [more]
Sunday, Oct 13, 2013
The nearby strong eruption of nearby Klyuchevskoy volcano obscures any seismic signal from Bezymianny, but according to KVERT, the lava dome remains active. [more]
Tuesday, Oct 01, 2013
The strong seismic activity of nearby Klyuchevskoy volcano obscured the seismicity of Bezymianny, which likely remains active with slow extrusion of its lava dome. Video data showed a moderate gas-steam activity of the volcano (KVERT). [more]
Friday, Sep 06, 2013
Weak effusive activity continues, evidenced by steaming/degassing and a thermal anomaly at the lava dome visible on satellite data. KVERT has no seismic data, because the ongoing eruption at nearby Klyuchevskoy obscures the seismic activity from Bezymianny. [more]
