Shiveluch volcano, Kamchatka: explosive eruption produces ash plume to 28,000 ft altitude
Tuesday Jan 21, 2014 08:31 AM | DOOR: T
Ash column rising from Shiveluch volcano this morning
A relatively large explosion occurred this morning at the volcano. An ash plume rose to estimated 28,000 ft (8 km) altitude and drifted WSW. Following the eruption, the volcano continued to produce intense degassing and minor ash venting, and glow from the active lava dome is visible on night-time webcam images.
Monday, Jan 20, 2014
The volcano has been a bit calmer over the past days with no significant explosions / ash emissions from the (active) dome reported. Most of the time, the volcano is covered in clouds, but occasional views show intense degassing.
Monday, Jan 13, 2014
The volcano continues to erupt viscous lava and has frequent small to medium-sized explosions. This morning, it produced again an ash plume that rose to estimated 27,000 ft (8.1 km) altitude that drifted WSW, Tokyo VAAC alerted the aviation community.
Sunday, Jan 12, 2014
An explosion or a pyroclastic flow from a partial lava dome collapse produced an ash plume rising to 28,000 ft (8.5 km) this morning. Views on the webcam show a plume but don't allow to see details what occurred at the lava dome.
Saturday, Jan 11, 2014
The volcano continues to extrude viscous lava, generating explosions and hot avalanches. An ash plume to estimated 23,000 ft (7 km) altitude and drifting east was detected on satellite imagery yesterday. Cloud cover prevents more detailed observations.
Thursday, Jan 09, 2014
A series of ash plumes to altitudes around 20,000 ft (6 km) from the volcano were reported by VAAC Tokyo, suggesting that the lava dome is currently in a relatively active phase with frequent explosions and/or rockfalls / pyroclastic flows.

Photos from Germany
: Germany has a large number of volcanoes - most of them extinct, but the Eifel volcanic field is still potentially active.
The term for all fine-grained volcanic products fragmented during explosive eruptions.
Divergent plate boundaries in oceans
: Two ocean plates move apart from each other. Hot upwelling mantle material forms magmas that continuously produce new oceanic crust. An ocean widens.
