Karymsky volcano (Kamchatka) activity update

Saturday Mar 29, 2014 10:20 AM | AUTEUR : T

Activity at the volcano seems to have been on comparably high levels, since ash plume reports have become more frequent recently.
VAAC Tokyo reported ongoing ash emissions with a plume drifting eastwards at estimated 7,000 ft (2.1 km) altitude.

Background:

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.
