Karymsky volcano (Kamchatka) activity update
Tuesday Mar 18, 2014 18:11 PM | AUTEUR : T
Intermittent strombolian to vulcanian explosions continue at the volcano. This morning, VAAC Tokyo reported an ash plume at 7,000 ft (2.1 km) altitude extending SE from Karymsky.
Wednesday, Mar 12, 2014
An ash plume to 7,000 ft (2.1 km) altitude and extending SW was reported early this morning (VAAC Tokyo). ... [details]
Sunday, Mar 02, 2014
The volcano continues to have strombolian to vulcanian explosions. Some of them are large enough to produce ash plumes visible on satellite imagery, such as one on 28 Feb (ash plume to 7,000 ft reported by VAAC Tokyo). [details]
Wednesday, Jan 22, 2014
The volcano continues to have sporadic small to medium-sized strombolian-vulcanian explosions from its summit crater. Small ash plumes are regularly being detected on satellite imagery. [details]
Monday, Jan 20, 2014
The volcano continues to produce sporadic strombolian and small vulcanian explosions. VAAC Tokyo reported a small ash plume yesterday at 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude.
Thursday, Jan 02, 2014
Intermittent strombolian to vulcanian explosions continue to be registered. An ash plume of 1.5-2 km height was reported by KVERT extending about 120 km to the SE. A thermal anomaly is visible on satellite data, while no seismic data are currently available for technical reasons. [details]
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.

Active volcanoes in China
: Did you know that there are at least 15 active volcanoes in China? The last eruption was from the Kunlun volcano in 1951.
Top 20 quakes in 2016
: Several magnitude 7 quakes occurred in 2016 (but none above M8): Papua New Guinea, NZ, Ecuador, Solomon Islands, Sumatra, Chile, Alaska and others - nearly all major earthquakes were located near active subduction zones.
See the top 20 list of largest quakes in 2016 with this map.
Photos from Kamchatka
: Kamchatka in Russia's far east is one of world's remotest regions and has an almost unparalleled density of active volcanoes. Look at photos taken during our expeditions from this wonderful corner of the world!
