KVERT WEEKLY INFORMATION RELEASE 46-2018
Kamchatkan and Kuriles Volcanic Activity

November 15, 2018, 22:11 UTC (November 16, 2018, 10:11 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.

56.64 N, 161.32 E; Elevation 10768 ft (3283 m), the dome elevation ~8200 ft (2500 m)
Aviation Colour Code is ORANGE


A moderate eruptive activity of the volcano continues. Ash explosions up to 32,800-49,200 ft (10-15 km) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircrafts.

A moderate eruptive activity of the volcano continues. Ash cloud drifted up to 460 km to the east from the volcano after explosive event on November 9. Satellite data by KVERT showed a weak thermal anomaly over the volcano on November 9-11, and 15.

A moderate explosive activity of the volcano continues. According to visual data by volcanologists from Severo-Kurilsk, explosions sent ash up to 4.5 km a.s.l. all week; ash clouds drifted to the eastern directions from the volcano. Satellite data by KVERT showed a weak thermal anomaly over the volcano on November 12-13.
