Karymsky volcano (Kamchatka): elevated activity, frequent explosions

One of Kamchatka's most active volcanoes has recently been very active again: satellite data show intense ash emissions that blanket the snow-clad landscape east of the volcano up to the coast with a layer of dark ash.
The current activity is likely consisting of strombolian to vulcanian-type explosions at irregular, but possibly very frequent intervals. The volcano is extremely remote from any populated center and road, and only accessible by helicopter or via day-long treks. There is no ground monitoring of the volcano.
If activity continues, we might try visit it during our upcoming Volcano Special tour to Kamchatka 16-24 March.
KVERT reported on 16 February that a satellite image captured an ash plume from Karymsky drifting 55 km SE at altitudes of 2.5-3 km (8,200-10,000 ft) a.s.l.
The Aviation Color Code was raised to Orange (the second highest level on a four-color scale). According to the Tokyo VAAC a possible ash plume on 17 February rose to 3.7 km (12,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted SE. A weak ash plume drifting 117 km ESE was visible in satellite images on 18 February.

Vorherige Nachrichten


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.
