Kamchatka and the Northern Kuriles volcanoes: Erupting or Restless

KVERT/Volcano Observatory Notification to Aviation
VONA/KVERT WEEKLY INFORMATION RELEASE 25-2016
Kamchatkan and Northern Kuriles Volcanic Activity

June 23, 2016, 23:53 UTC (June 24, 2016, 11:53 KST)

KVERT monitor 30 active volcanoes of Kamchatka and 6 active volcanoes of Northern Kuriles. Not all of these volcanoes had eruptions in historical time, however they are potentially active and therefore are of concern to aviation.

SUMMARY OF AVIATION COLOR CODES:

SHEVELUCH VOLCANO (CAVW #300270)
56.64 N, 161.32 E; Elevation 10768 ft (3283 m), the dome elevation ~8200 ft (2500 m)
Aviation Color Code is ORANGE


Explosive-extrusive eruption of the volcano continues. Ash explosions up to 32,800 ft (10 km) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.

A growth of the lava dome continues (a viscous lava flow reveal in the northern its part), strong fumarole activity, ash explosions, hot avalanches and an incandescence of the dome blocks and hot avalanches accompany this process. According to video data, an incandescence of the dome lava blocks and strong or moderate gas-steam activity were observing all week. Satellite data by KVERT showed an intensive thermal anomaly over the lava dome all week.

KLYUCHEVSKOY VOLCANO (CAVW #300260)
56.06 N, 160.64 E; Elevation 15580 ft (4750 m)
Aviation Color Code is ORANGE


Explosive-effusive eruption of the volcano continues. Ash explosions up to 19,700-26,240 ft (6-8 km) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.

Explosive-effusive eruption of the volcano continues. According to video and satellite data, the lava flow continues to effusing on the south-eastern flank of the volcano (along Apakhonchich chute). Satellite data by KVERT showed an intensive thermal anomaly over the volcano; an ash cloud drifted for about 30 km to the east of the volcano on 18 June.

ALAID VOLCANO (CAVW #290390)
50.86 N, 155.56 E; Elevation 7672 ft (2339 m)
Aviation Color Code is ORANGE


Explosive eruption of the volcano continues. Ash explosions up to 19,700-26,240 ft (6-8 km) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.

A moderate eruptive activity of the volcano continues. Satellite data by KVERT showed a thermal anomaly over the volcano on 18, 20 and 22-23 June; the volcano was obscured by clouds in the other days of week.

BEZYMIANNY VOLCANO (CAVW #300250)
55.97 N, 160.6 E; Elevation 9453 ft (2882 m)
Aviation Color Code is YELLOW


A moderate gas-steam activity of the volcano continues. Ongoing activity could affect low-flying aircraft.

A moderate gas-steam activity of the volcano continues. Satellite data by KVERT showed a weak thermal anomaly over the volcano on 16, 20 and 23 June; the volcano was obscured by clouds in the other days of week.

KARYMSKY VOLCANO (CAVW #300130)
54.05 N, 159.44 E; Elevation 4874 ft (1486 m)
Aviation Color Code is YELLOW


A moderate gas-steam activity of the volcano continues, but ash explosions up to 19,700 ft (6 km) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect low-flying aircraft.

A moderate gas-steam activity of the volcano continues. Satellite data by KVERT showed the volcano was quiet or obscured by clouds last week.

In Russia, KVERT, on behalf of the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (IVS) FED RAS, is responsible for providing information on volcanic activity to international air navigation services for the airspace users.

KVERT scientists was available in the office from 8:30 AM till 6:00 PM (KST) 7 days in week and by phone during the evenings since 2005. KVERT produces daily satellite monitoring (since 2002 till now); analyses information from remote scientific observation stations and seismic data for volcanoes: Alaid, Avachinsky, Bezymianny, Gorely, Karymsky, Kizimen, Klyuchevskoy, Koryaksky, Mutnovsky, Plosky Tolbachik, Sheveluch, Ushkovsky, Zhupanovsky (from the Kamchatkan Branch of Geophysical Survey RAS); and other information to monitor activity at Kamchatkan and Northern Kuriles Volcanoes.
