Volcano news: Karymsky
Karymsky volcano (Kamchatka) activity update
Friday Mar 01, 2013 17:28 PM | BY: T
Moderate seismic activity of the volcano continues. Satellite data showed a thermal anomaly over the volcano on February 21 and 25-28.
Tuesday, Feb 19, 2013
mMderate seismic activity at Karymsky was detected during 8-15 February. Possible ash explosions on 11 February produced an ash plume that rose 3.2 km (10,500 ft) a.s.l. Satellite imagery showed a thermal anomaly on the volcano during 12-13 February.
Sunday, Feb 10, 2013
KVERT reports weak seismic activity at the volcano.
Tuesday, Jan 29, 2013
Seismic activity was low today, but the volcano has occasional small explosions.
Friday, Jan 11, 2013
KVERT reports that moderate seismic activity of the volcano continues. Possibly, small explosions with ash plumes up to 9,800 ft (3 km) a.s.l. occurred last week. Satellite data showed a thermal anomaly over the volcano on January 05-06. ...
Thursday, Dec 20, 2012
KVERT reported that weak-to-moderate seismic activity at Karymsky was detected during 7-14 December. Seismic data indicated that ash plumes possibly rose to an altitude of 3 km (9,800 ft) a.s.l. on 12 December. Satellite imagery showed a thermal anomaly on the volcano on 9 and 12-13 December.
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.

: One of the most bizarre landscapes on earth: Dallol is a vast and very active hydrothermal field creating a colorful array of hot springs, small geysers, salt towers, colorful lakes and ponds in the middle of the deepest part of the Danakil desert and the Karum salt lake.
