Previous news
Thursday, Jan 02, 2014
A thermal anomaly is still visible over the northern area of Tolbachinsky Dol. KVERT reports weak seismic activity of the volcano. [more]
Tuesday, Oct 01, 2013
No seismic or surface eruptive activity has been recorded recently. The eruption can probably by now be regarded to be over, but KVERT maintains Aviation Color Code yellow. [more]
Friday, Sep 06, 2013
The eruption is probably ending. KVERT reported only weak seismicity and incandescence, accompanied by moderate steaming/degassing, and a small remaining thermal anomaly on satellite data. [more]

Monday, Sep 02, 2013
Although believed to have more or less stopped a week ago, it seems that weak eruptive has continued and regained some strength again now. Weak tremor has reappeared and incandescence could be seen again at the active vent at Tolbachinsky Dol at night. Tourists could observe strombolian activity and effusion of lava into the tube system on 30 August. [more]
Wednesday, Aug 28, 2013
The eruption seems to be coming to an end. Seismic activity dropped from still moderately high levels (2.4 mcm/s) to very low (0.12 mcm/s) on 24 Aug, and the effusion of lava has stopped. No incandescence was spotted in the area of the vent during the past days. The Aviation Color Code was lowered to yellow. [more]
