Volcano news: Karymsky
Karymsky volcano (Kamchatka) activity update
Wednesday Jan 28, 2015 18:32 PM | DOOR: T
Moderate explosive activity continues. Ash plumes from strombolian to vulcanian eruptions were reported by KVERT, reaching approx. 14,000 ft (4.2 km) altitude and drifting north and later east from the volcano. Aviation color code remains "orange".
Friday, Jan 23, 2015
Another small ash plume was detected by Tokyo VAAC this morning. The volcano's activity has been characterized by intermittent strombolian to small vulcanian explosions for years. ...
Wednesday, Jan 21, 2015
More explosions have occurred at the volcano. Tokyo VAAC reported ash plumes to 7-12,000 ft (2.1-3.6 km) elevation drifting SE.
Monday, Jan 19, 2015
A small volcanic ash plume was reported this morning extending ESE from the volcano. Karymsky has intermittent strombolian to vulcanian explosions.
Saturday, Oct 04, 2014
A small volcanic ash plume extending NW from the volcano was reported last evening. Karymsky has been producing intermittent small to moderate explosions for several years.
Wednesday, Sep 10, 2014
Intermittent strombolian to vulcanian explosions continue from the volcano and produce ash plumes that sometimes are spotted on satellite imagery. ...
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.
