Karymsky volcano (Kamchatka) activity update: weak seismic activity, no explosions, but thermal anomaly at crater
Friday Jul 27, 2012 09:32 AM | DOOR: T
KVERT reported mostly weak seismic activity from Karymsky volcano in Kamchatka during 13-23 July. Satellite imagery showed a weak thermal anomaly on the volcano during 13-19 July.
Wednesday, Jun 20, 2012
KVERT reported that moderate seismic activity from Karymsky continued to be detected during 8-15 June, and indicated that possible ash plumes rose to an altitude of 3 km (9,800 ft) a.s.l. during 8-13 June. Meteorological cloud cover prevented satellite image views. Based on analysis of seismic data, KVERT reported that on 18 June possible ash plumes rose to an altitude of 3 km (10,000 ft) a.s.l.
Wednesday, Jun 13, 2012
KVERT reported that moderate seismic activity from Karymsky continued to be detected during 31 May-8 June, and indicated that possible ash plumes rose to an altitude of 2.4 km (8,000 ft) a.s.l. on 31 May. Satellite imagery showed a thermal anomaly on the volcano during 3-4 and 6 June
Friday, Jun 01, 2012
Moderate seismic activity from Karymsky continued to be detected during 18-25 May, and indicated that possible ash plumes rose to an altitude of 2.2 km (7,200 ft) a.s.l. on 17 and 19 May. Satellite imagery showed a thermal anomaly on the volcano during 17-18, 20, 22, and 24 May. ...
Thursday, May 24, 2012
Moderate seismic activity from Karymsky continued to be detected during 11-18 May. Possible ash plumes rose to an altitude of 1.8 km (6,000 ft) a.s.l. on 10 and 14 May. ...
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.
