Sheveluch volcano (Kamchatka): intense activity
Friday Jan 04, 2019 16:08 PM | BY: T

It seems a new surge of fresh magma is currently arriving at the lava dome, prompting a phase of rapid growth. Several glowing lobes can be seen on the webcam during night time.
Ash emissions by explosions and rockfalls, triggering small to moderate pyroclastic flows accompany this activity. Ash plumes rising to approx. 18,000 ft (5.5 km) have been near continuous, and explosions sending ash to the tropopause in approx. 10-12 km altitude such as the last one on 30 Dec are also no rarity and could occur again any time.
