Klyuchevskoy volcano (Kamchatka): lava flows continue to be active

The (mainly effusive) eruption continues strongly and with little changes. Several lava flows remain active on the upper eastern slopes of the volcano; the one one the western side has stopped at some time around 18 or 19 September.
The abundant lava emission continues to enlarge a field of fresh lava on the upper slopes of the volcano and produces an intense thermal signal. Intermittent mild to moderate ash emissions from strombolian activity in the summit crater produces occasional ash plumes that often are detected on satellite data.

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.
