Small pyroclastic flow from Shiveluch on 30 Dec 2012
Activity at Shiveluch has been relatively calm, but the slow extrusion of the lava dome inside the crater continues as incandescence and occasional explosions, but also occasional rockfalls and associated weak pyroclastic flows show. As our French colleagues from activolcans noticed, a small partial dome collapse occurred last night at 21h54 local time and produced a pyroclastic flow that traveled almost 1 km through the ravine at the base of the active dome. ...more

During 23-30 November a viscous lava flow continued to effuse on the NW flank of Shiveluch's lava dome, accompanied by hot avalanches, incandescence, and fumarolic activity. Satellite imagery showed a thermal anomaly on the lava dome.

Mild ash emissions occurred during the night. An ash plume drifting at 6,500 ft / 2 km altitude carried by strong northwesterly winds was detected on satellite images at >340 km distance at 00:32 GMT earlier today.

Ash eruption from Sheveluch on 20 Sep (KVERT webcam)
Weak seismic activity and occasional small explosions continue, and a thermal anomaly is visible at the volcano indicating continuing slow lava dome growth (calculated to 2.6 m3/second). The KVERT webcam showed an ash eruption on 20 Sep.
