Karymsky volcano (Kamchatka) activity update
lundi mars 31, 2014 17:24 | AUTEUR : T
The volcano remains more active than average. Another series of strombolian to vulcanian-type explosions today produced ash plumes rising to estimated 7,000 ft (2.1 km) and drifting SE (VAAC Tokyo).
samedi, mars 29, 2014
Activity at the volcano seems to have been on comparably high levels, since ash plume reports have become more frequent recently. ... [details]
lundi, mars 24, 2014
A volcanic ash plume was see on satellite imagery this morning at 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude and extending SE of the volcano, VAAC Tokyo reported. ... [details]
mardi, mars 18, 2014
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. [details]
mercredi, mars 12, 2014
An ash plume to 7,000 ft (2.1 km) altitude and extending SW was reported early this morning (VAAC Tokyo). ...
dimanche, mars 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]
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.
