A new eruption, of mild intensity only, has been occurring at the remote volcano recently, as satellite imagery shows:
Thermal signals and visible images show increased heat radiation and suggest that mild ash emissions have occurred during or since late October and early November along with the emission of a new lava flow on the volcano's northern flank.
The attached satellite image from 7 Nov shows a gas plume and a thermal signal. The thermal signal has an elongated shape and corresponds to a new lava flow on the northern flank, more than 1 km long. It is unknown when exactly the new eruption started, but the earliest available satellite data with increased heat emission are from late October.

Sarychev volcano erupted violently starting 11 June 2009 until mid-end of June, producing a series of sub-plinian eruptions sending large gas and ash plumes to 10-14 km elevation, which drifted westward across the northern hemisphere. The most powerful eruptions occurred between June 11-16. No large ash explosions were noted after 16 June, but Sarychev continues to erupt and produce smaller gas and ash plumes. ... Lees alle
