Karymsky volcano (Kamchatka): ash plume reported
Monday Apr 27, 2015 08:24 AM | DOOR: T
An explosion occurred this morning that was strong enough to produce an ash plume to approx. 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude (VAAC Tokyo).
Friday, Apr 03, 2015
An ash plume was reported this morning. The volcano has intermittent strombolian to vulcanian explosions, sometimes strong enough to produce ash clouds visible on satellite imagery.
Wednesday, Mar 25, 2015
Intermittent strombolian to vulcanian explosions continue to occur at the volcano. ...
Wednesday, Mar 04, 2015
Intermittent strombolian to vulcanian explosions have continued to occur throughout the past weeks.
Wednesday, Jan 28, 2015
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. ...
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.

: A remote island in the Flores Sea of Indonesia formed by a single volcano that has been in strong strombolian eruption for years. We regularly lead expeditions to there where we camp several days to observe it.
