Karymski volcano (Kamchatka): eruption update
The explosive activity at Karymsky volcano continues. Seismic data and satellite observations indicate ash explosions from the summit crater. Ash plumes might reach up to 6 km (or 19,700 ft.) a.s.l. A strong thermal anomaly over the volcanic crater was detected. Numerous ash plumes extend up to about 140 km (90 mi) to different directions from the volcano as observed on satellite images and present a hazard for low-flying aircraft in the area.
Tom and Marco are just back home from our pilot tour to Nyiragongo volcano, which was very successful, so we plan to repeat the tour in July this year already. In the near future, we will post photos from the tour as well as details about the tour. Stay tuned!... [more]
2005 is soon over, and it's a good time to take a break and think about important things in life. The VolcanoDiscovery team wishes you a future without wars and tsunamis. Merry Christmas![more]
The tours this year on Santorini are now over, too, with lots of fun and great company as well. Thanks to all participants!
Before we send out our formal newsletter, when the programs for 2006 are completed, a quick notice to announce that Tom will offer a new, 12-days tour / expedition to the Rift Valley including Lengai volcano in Feb. and summer 2006, Costa Rica in late March and (probably) July 2006. As well, Tobias (who is right now touring in the Saronic Gulf) awaits with a new, exciting program on Milos, a wonderful, volcanic island in Greece! Other new or recently developped programs include Nisyros (Greece) and the Eifel region in Germany (details will come soon).
Greetings from Athens! Tom
Hello everybody on the tours in Indonesia this summer!
