Shiveluch volcano (Kamchatka) activity update
Friday Jul 05, 2013 15:02 PM | DOOR: T
Activity of the growing lava dome after the recent larger collapse on 27 June has remained elevated. Smaller rockfalls and possibly explosions have occurred over the past days, possibly as a result of re-adjustments of the young collapse scar. Several minor ash plumes have been detected by VAAC Tokyo.
Monday, Jul 01, 2013
Accompanied by moderate tremor levels, the lava dome continues to grow and produce hot avalanches on the western flank. Strong degassing accompanies this process. (KVERT)
Thursday, Jun 27, 2013
A phase of intense activity occurred last night starting at 19:10 UTC, and lasting for about 40 minutes. The activity was probably a major collapse of the dome and/or accompanied by explosions. It produced a large ash plume rising to about 10-12 km altitude (VAAC Tokyo) into the atmosphere. Due to cloud cover, no direct observations could be made. ...
Tuesday, Jun 25, 2013
Seismic activity has decreased, classified as weak by KVERT. This suggests the active dome is in a phase of relative calm.
Monday, Jun 10, 2013
An explosion occurred last night at 21:02 UTC lasting for 6.5 minutes and sending an ash plume to an estimated altitude of about 30,000 ft (7-8 km), KVERT reports. The eruption was not observed directly, but inferred from seismic data.
Sunday, May 19, 2013
The activity of the growing lava dome continues with little changes. KVERT reports moderate seismic activity, moderate gas-steam activity and incandescence.
