Eruption at Sheveluch volcano this morning (KVERT webcam)
A strong eruption occurred at the volcano yesterday morning around 9am local time (9pm last night GMT). An explosion and/or partial collapse at the active lava dome produced an eruption column that quickly rose to estimated 33,000 ft (10 km) altitude and drifted both NE and SE before dissipating over the North Pacific Ocean. ...plus
In addition, some small pyroclastic flows were generated that traveled approx. 1-2 km down the southwestern sector, followed by secondary mud flows (caused by melt-water) that reached up to about 3 km distance. The eruption was preceded by near-constant steaming and moderate ash venting from the dome during the hours before which had started during the night. However overall, the event came after a long period of relative calm at the volcano. The activity at Shiveluch has been decreasing over the past months as heat emission data captured by satellites clearly show (as well as reduced frequency of larger explosions). Whether the eruption is a sign that activity might be on the rise again or just a temporary increase triggered by slowly accumulated over-pressure inside the upper conduit and lava dome remains open.

Eruption of Sheveluch volcano this morning (KVERT webcam)
The volcano has increased its (visible) activity during the past days. A larger explosion occurred during the late evening of Thursday 7 Sep (at 21:46 local time), producing an ash plume that rose to estimated 9 km altitude. ...plus
During the next day, near-continuous ash emissions occurred from the active dome. Another explosion was recorded this morning, generating a plume of several km height. Our expedition team in Kamchatka is currently on its way to the volcano; we will be back with first-hand observation shortly. [moins]
Ambrym volcano photos: Ambrym (Vanuatu) is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Its vast caldera has an amazing moonscape and several active vents that contain boiling lava lakes, most famous Marum and Benbow.
Tours to erupting volcanoes: From time to time, we organize special tours to see volcanoes in eruption. These are often announced only few days or weeks in advance. Find out more!
