Bezymianny volcano (Kamchatka): earthquakes and eruptions caused ash plumes

Friday Jun 04, 2010 09:05 AM | DOOR: TS

Earthquakes were detected in the vicinity of Bezymianny's lava dome during 23-24 May. Fumarolic activity was seen on 21 May and the temperature of the thermal anomaly detected in satellite imagery increased from 18 degrees Celsius on 19 May to 48.8 degrees Celsius on 23 May. So a increase of activity is possible. During 21-28satellite data showed a thermal anomaly over the lava dome and fumarolic activity was detected.Seismic data indicated that an explosive eruption began on 1 June, producing a large ash cloud about 127 by 93 km in dimension. Ash plumes from two explosions rose to altitudes of 8-10 km (26,200-32,800 ft) a.s.l. Ashfall was reported in Kozyrevsk village. Two bright thermal anomalies were seen in satellite imagery, possibly from pyroclastic flow deposits.
