Ebeko volcano (Kurile Islands): intermittent ash emissions

Wednesday Mar 01, 2017 08:33 AM | BY: T

Ash emissions from Ebeko on 27 Feb 2017 seen from Severo-Kurilsk (image: T. Kotenko / IVS FEB RAS / KVERT)

After a period of approx 4 weeks with only intermittent and very small emissions, a stronger phase of ash eruptions occurred again on Monday.
Dense ash plumes rising several hundred meters could be observed from the small town of Severo-Kurilsk. KVERT maintains Aviation Color Code Yellow for the volcano.
The nature of the activity is unknown without a detailed analysis of the ash particles. In most cases, this type of activity is phreatic, i.e. only fragmented older rocks are being erupted and the explosions are entirely caused by shallow steam explosions, when ground water is heated by an underlying magma body, which itself is not (yet) reaching the surface.
