Klyuchevsky volcano news & activity updates
Klyuchevskoy volcano (Kamchatka) activity update
Monday Nov 25, 2013 15:40 PM | DOOR: T
Activity continues at moderate levels. KVERT reports an explosion this morning and continuous ash emissions reaching 20,000 ft (6 km) altitude and drifting east.
Wednesday, Nov 20, 2013
Stokte de activiteit blijft hoog met een lopende milde tot sterke explosies op de top. Een bijzonder intense fase gisteren geproduceerd een pluim stijgen tot 10-12 km hoogte die uitgebreide SE. Vandaag, activiteit is afgenomen, maar pluimen blijven bereiken van 5-6 km hoogte en drift N en NE.
Saturday, Nov 16, 2013
Explosive activity at the summit crater has intensified. The volcano produces a near constant steam and ash plume of fluctuating size. The ash plume reaches about 21,000 ft (6.3 km) altitude drifting east.
Thursday, Nov 14, 2013
The volcano remains active. It produces a variable but often intense steam plume with possibly some ash. On webcam images, there are sporadic small explosions visible, suggesting that weak strombolian activity continues at the summit. A large steam ring was produced this morning (see image / video) - similar to what we have observed at Etna last Monday
Wednesday, Nov 06, 2013
KVERT reports moderate seismic activity (amplitude of volcanic tremor: 5.11 mcm/s), which has doubled over the past days. Video data showed strong gas-steam activity of the volcano. (KVERT)
Monday, Nov 04, 2013
Tremor and degassing have increased with respect to the last report from KVERT. A steam plume rises about 2 km above the crater and a thermal anomaly over the volcano is visible on satellite data. This suggests that some volcanic activity (perhaps strombolian) has resumed (or continues).

Kliuchevskoi is Kamchatka's highest and most active volcano. Since its origin about 6000 years ago, the beautifully symmetrical, 4835-m-high basaltic stratovolcano has produced frequent moderate-volume explosive and effusive eruptions without major periods of inactivity. Kliuchevskoi rises above a saddle NE of sharp-peaked Kamen volcano and lies SE of the broad Ushkovsky massif. More than 100 flank eruptions have occurred at Kliuchevskoi during the past roughly 3000 years, with most lateral craters and cones occurring along radial fissures between the unconfined NE-to-SE flanks of the conical volcano between 500 m and 3600 m elevation. The morphology of its 700-m-wide summit crater has been frequently modified by historical eruptions, which have been recorded since the late-17th century. Historical eruptions have originated primarily from the summit crater, but have also included numerous major explosive and effusive eruptions from flank craters.
