Klyuchevskoy volcano (Kamchatka): eruption ends
Monday Mar 09, 2015 15:39 PM | BY: T
The explosive-effusive eruption of the volcano probably finished.
According to KVERT, volcanic tremor significant decreased yesterday and no lava or ash emissions could be seen any more at the summit crater. Moderately degassing and a thermal anomaly at the summit continue. Aviation color code was lowered from orange to yellow.
Wednesday, Mar 04, 2015
Strombolian activity and mild to moderate ash emissions continue at the summit crater with no significant changes over the past weeks.
Thursday, Feb 19, 2015
The strombolian-type activity from the summit crater of the volcano continues at moderate levels, with little changes over the past week. ...
Monday, Feb 16, 2015
A stronger phase in the ongoing eruption produced an ash plume that rose to 23,000 ft (7 km) last night (Tokyo VAAC).
Friday, Feb 13, 2015
Strombolian activity continues. Occasional larger explosions produce moderate ash plumes such as this morning, when Tokyo VAAC reported a plume to 20,000 ft (6 km) altitude extending N.
Thursday, Feb 05, 2015
Strombolian explosions of small to moderate size and an active lava flow on the volcano's upper flank continue.

Kliuchevskoi is Kamchatka's highest and most active volcano. Since its origin about 6000 years ago, the beautifully symmetrical, 4835-m-high basaltic stratovolcano has produced frequent moderate-volume explosive and effusive eruptions without major periods of inactivity. Kliuchevskoi rises above a saddle NE of sharp-peaked Kamen volcano and lies SE of the broad Ushkovsky massif. More than 100 flank eruptions have occurred at Kliuchevskoi during the past roughly 3000 years, with most lateral craters and cones occurring along radial fissures between the unconfined NE-to-SE flanks of the conical volcano between 500 m and 3600 m elevation. The morphology of its 700-m-wide summit crater has been frequently modified by historical eruptions, which have been recorded since the late-17th century. Historical eruptions have originated primarily from the summit crater, but have also included numerous major explosive and effusive eruptions from flank craters.
