Karymsky volcano (Kamchatka): frequent explosions
Friday Aug 21, 2015 08:49 AM | VON: T
The volcano is currently in a comparably more active phase. Reports of ash plumes from stronger strombolian to vulcanian type explosions have become more frequent.
This morning, Tokyo VAAC reported a plume reaching 12,000 ft (3.6 km) altitude drifting north from the volcano.
Tuesday, Aug 18, 2015
The volcano had an explosion this morning that produced an ash plume that rose to 15,000 ft and drifted SE.
Sunday, Aug 09, 2015
Tokyo VAAC reports continuous ash emissions from the volcano.
Monday, Aug 03, 2015
Explosions with ash emissions detected on satellite images have been more frequent lately. Yesterday, VAAC Tokyo reports an ash plume at 14,000 ft (4.2 km) altitude drifting north from the volcano.
Tuesday, Jul 28, 2015
An ash plume from an explosion produced an ash plume that rose to 14,000 ft (4.2 km) altitude and drifted north this morning. The volcano continues to produce intermittent strombolian- to vulcanian-type explosive eruptions.
Wednesday, Jun 10, 2015
Ash emissions were seen on satellite imagery yesterday. The volcano has been producing intermittent ash-rich strombolian to vulcanian explosions for years.
Karymsky, the most active volcano of Kamchatka's eastern volcanic zone, is a symmetrical stratovolcano constructed within a 5-km-wide caldera that formed during the early Holocene. The caldera cuts the south side of the Pleistocene Dvor volcano and is located outside the north margin of the large mid-Pleistocene Polovinka caldera, which contains the smaller Akademia Nauk and Odnoboky calderas.
Most seismicity preceding Karymsky eruptions originated beneath Akademia Nauk caldera, which is located immediately south of Karymsky volcano. The caldera enclosing Karymsky volcano formed about 7600-7700 radiocarbon years ago; construction of the Karymsky stratovolcano began about 2000 years later. The latest eruptive period began about 500 years ago, following a 2300-year quiescence. Much of the cone is mantled by lava flows less than 200 years old. Historical eruptions have been vulcanian or vulcanian-strombolian with moderate explosive activity and occasional lava flows from the summit crater.

Earthquakes near Volcanoes
: Our world-wide map continuously detects shallow earthquakes near volcanoes. These could be early signs of unrest and often precede eruptions.
: Discover with us the fascinating natural history of Santorini volcano in Greece on this walking and study tour.
Exploring the unknown
: We sometimes invite you to "test" new itineraries or destinations with us. Such trips are a reduced cost and require a higher degree of flexibility, but often offer a great deal of adventure.
