Satellite image of Sarychev Peak volcano from 7 Nov 2017 (image: SENTINEL 2 - ESA/Copernicus, annotated by Culture Volcan)
A new eruption, of mild intensity only, has been occurring at the remote volcano recently, as satellite imagery shows:
Thermal signals and visible images show increased heat radiation and suggest that mild ash emissions have occurred during or since late October and early November along with the emission of a new lava flow on the volcano's northern flank.
The attached satellite image from 7 Nov shows a gas plume and a thermal signal. The thermal signal has an elongated shape and corresponds to a new lava flow on the northern flank, more than 1 km long. It is unknown when exactly the new eruption started, but the earliest available satellite data with increased heat emission are from late October.
