Shiveluch volcano news and updates

Shiveluch volcano (Kamchatka): powerful ash explosions, plumes reaching 7-10 km altitude

Thursday May 31, 2012 09:38 AM | DOOR: T

Shiveluch volcano continues to be very active, with a growing lava dome and occasional large ash explosions. A strong eruption that produced an ash plume that rose to 6 km altitude occurred on 29 May, Russian scientists from KVERT report. According to a Itar-Tass news entry, the plume eventually reached 7.3 km and the eruption followed an increase of seismic activity.
Another, probably stronger eruption seems to have occurred on 30 May. An ash plume from Shiveluch volcano was detected at 10 km altitude on satellite data (Tokyo VAAC).
Since the volcano is very remote, its eruptions pose little danger to people on the ground, but the ash plumes they produce are a hazard to aircraft en route from N-America to Japan and are closely monitored by satellite.
