VONA/KVERT DAILY REPORT
Kamchatkan and Northern Kuriles Volcanic Activity

October 21, 2014, all time is UTC

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


A growth of the lava dome continues, moderate ash explosions, fumarolic activity and incandescence of the dome summit and hot avalanches accompanies this process. Satellite data showed the volcano was obscured by clouds.

ZHUPANOVSKY VOLCANO (CAVW #300120)
53.59 N, 159.15 E; Elevation 9702 ft (2958 m)
Aviation Color Code is ORANGE


A moderate explosive eruption of the volcano probably continues. Satellite data showed the volcano was obscured by clouds.

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


A weak seismic activity of the volcano was registering. Satellite data showed the volcano was obscured by clouds.

KARYMSKY VOLCANO (CAVW #300130)
54.05 N, 159.44 E; Elevation 4874 ft (1486 m)

Aviation Color Codes
GREEN

Volcano is in normal, non-eruptive state

   or, after a change from a higher level: 

Volcanic activity considered to have ceased, and volcano reverted to its normal, non-eruptive state.
YELLOW

Volcano is experiencing signs of elevated unrest above known background levels. 

   or, after a change from higher level: 

Volcanic activity has decreased significantly but continues to be closely monitored for possible renewed increase.
ORANGE

Volcano is exhibiting heightened unrest with increased likelihood of eruption.

   or,

Volcanic eruption is underway with no or minor ash emission.
[specify ash-plume height if possible]
RED

Eruption is forecast to be imminent with significant emission of ash into the atmosphere likely.

  or,

Eruption is underway with significant emission of ash into the atmosphere.
[specify ash-plume height if possible]
