Kizimen volcano (Kamchatka, Russia): new activity reported
Friday Dec 27, 2013 07:12 AM | DOOR: T
Steaming Kizimen volcano this morning
Activity has picked up at the volcano again. An ash plume was reported this morning by VAAC Tokyo to 17,000 ft (5 km) altitude extending north. Webcam images show a significant steam plume which possibly contains ash.
This suggests that the lava dome might be entering a new phase of growth. KVERT still maintains the volcano at status "Green" (normal).
Monday, Dec 09, 2013
Activity has been low recently. It appears that the growth of the summit lava dome has paused or stopped. KVERT now keeps the volcano on level "green".
Tuesday, Oct 15, 2013
VAAC Tokyo reported an ash plume drifting at 13,000 ft (4 km) altitude from the volcano this morning at 05:28 UTC. Webcam images show a sustained steam-gas plume that might contain some ash. Glow from the summit lava dome can be seen on night-time images, indicating that lava extrusion continues: ...

Extrusion of magma at the lava dome has been weak recently, but it remains active.
Tuesday, Oct 01, 2013
Activity (extrusion of lava at the summit) continues, but has decreased recently, as incandescent rockfalls have become more rare. Seismic activity remains "moderate" (KVERT) and strong degassing can be seen. About a week ago, the prominent spine at the summit dome collapsed.
Friday, Sep 06, 2013
The volcano continues to extrude a viscous lava flow from the summit vent, producing hot avalanches on the western and eastern flanks and strong degassing. KVERT reports moderate seismic activity.
