A stronger than average explosion was reported yesterday (13:10 GMT), generating an ash plume to 18,000 ft (5.4 km) altitude and extending SE(Tokyo VAAC).
An ash plume was reported this morning from the volcano drifting SE (VAAC Tokyo). ... Lees alle
Several ash plumes have been reported from the volcano over the past days by Tokyo VAAC. Karymsky has intermittent strombolian to vulcanian-type explosions from its summit crater. ... Lees alle

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.
