Koryaksky at the NASA Earth Observatory 27 August 2009

Koryaksky at the NASA Earth Observatory

Russian volcano Koryaksky on the Kamchatka peninsula has been active recently, along with quite a few of its fellow Kamchatkan volcanoes. Earlier today NASA’s Aqua satellite passed overhead and its Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) captured Koryaksky volcano producing a diffuse white plume which blows away to the east. The resulting image can be found at the NASA Earth Observatory.

The city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky (population 200,000) is overlooked by Koryaksky and Avachinsky volcanoes, both highly active – the image above shows clearly just how close Koryaksky is to the city. Koryaksky has been designated a Decade Volcano jointly with Avachinsky because of its history of explosive eruptions and its proximity to populated areas.

The Kamchatka Six: Russia’s volcanoes rock and rumble 24 August 2009

‘Six Kamchatka volcanoes exhibit activity simultaneously for the first time in sixty years’, announces a story in Vostok Media today: ‘”This is a rarity. For the first time in sixty years the six volcanoes show activity”, Kamchatka scientists from the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology stated. At present they are trying to figure out the reasons behind the increase of activity of the Kamchatka volcanoes’.

Kamchatka volcanic activity 24 August 2009

But which six volcanoes? The map above (adapted from the AVO activity map) shows the alert levels for the Kamchatka volcanoes, as reported by the Kamchatka Volcanoes Emergency Response Team (KVERT). The Vostok Media story lists Shiveluch, Kliuchevskoi, Bezymianny, Karymsky, Koryaksky and Gorely as the six active volcanoes in question. The last-named, they explain, may erupt soon: ‘Scientists agree that Gorely volcano might soon erupt for the first time in twenty two years. Water temperature of the lake located on top of the volcanic mountain is rising, which may well indicate oncoming eruption’.

However, Gorely isn’t active at the moment, and KVERT rate it Green. Shiveluch and Koryaksky are at Orange, and Kliuchevskoi, Karymsky and Bezymianny are at Yellow. Also at Yellow alert (since the end of July) is Kizimen: KVERT reports today that ‘Activity of the volcano continues. Strong explosive eruption possible in case of further seismicity increasing. Seismicity was above background levels on August 15 and 17-20; and at background levels in the other days of this week’ … so perhaps Kizimen rather than Gorely should have been in the Kamchatka Six.

Koryaksky: 4-kilometre eruption plume reported 17 August 2009

The Russian news agency Itar-Tass is reporting that the Kamchatkan volcano Koryasky is erupting and producing a 4-kilometre-high plume:

Koryaksky volcano … is ejecting columns of vapor, gas and ash to the altitude of about 4,000 meters above sea level. The trail of gas and ash extends over a distance of almost 20 kilometers. Experts from the Kamchakta Volcanic Eruption Response Team told Itar-Tass the eruption does not pose any threat to nearby population centers.

Tokyo VAAC issued an advisory for Koryaksky early today also reporting ash to about 4 km (13000 feet). Current webcam images (around 16:00 GMT) show a small plume and diffuse ash clouds around the peak.

The KVERT updates page at the Alaska Volcano Observatory reports that the volcano is now at Orange alert status (‘explosive eruption is possible within a few days and may occur with little or no warning’).

[UPDATE: there is an archive of Koryaksky webcam images at the University of Alaska - thanks to Stefan of Stromboli.org for pointing this out in the comments below.]
