Shiveluch volcano (Kamchatka) activity update

Shiveluch volcano this morning (KVERT webcam)
Shiveluch volcano this morning (KVERT webcam)
Explosive and effusive activity continue. Occasional clear weather webcam images show strong steaming (with some ash?) and warm or hot pyroclastic deposits from recent block avalanches from the growing lava dome. A possible explosion this morning produced an ash plume reported to flight level 170 (17,000 ft / 5 km) altitude and extending SE. (VAAC Tokyo)

Wednesday, Nov 06, 2013
Activity remains elevated. A new ash plume (likely from another partial dome collapse or explosion) was detected this morning at 03:22 GMT at an estimated altitude of 14,000 ft (4,2 km) extending to the east. [meer...]
Bright glow from a likely collapse event at Shiveluch this morning (KVERT webcam)
Monday, Nov 04, 2013
An small ash plume rising to 12,000 ft (3,6 km) was detected at 11:00 UTC by VAAC Tokyo this morning (20:00 local time), suggesting another eruption (likely partial collapse from the dome). Video data show increased incandescence at that time, confirming this interpretation. [meer...]
First of the two pyroclastic flows yesterday at Shiveluch
Sunday, Nov 03, 2013
Extrusion of viscous lava at the dome continues to feed at least 2 thick lava flows on the SW, NW and NE slopes. Two larger partial dome collapses occurred yesterday, producing pyroclastic flows and ash plumes that rose to altitudes of 23,000 ft (7 km). ... [meer...]

The growth of the lava dome continues along with strong degassing/steaming and occasional explosions that produce ash plumes rising to up to 4-6 km altitude. [meer...]
Ash explosion from SHiveluch this morning (KVERT webcam)
Friday, Oct 18, 2013
As if it was jealous of Klyuchevskoy, the other volcano currently in violent eruption, Shiveluch has increased its activity recently. Dome growth has gained speed again, producing more frequent avalanches as well as explosions. Several explosions occurred during the past 24 hours sending ash plumes to 20-23,000 ft (6-7 km) altitude and drifting east. ... [meer...]
