Karymsky, Russia

KVERT reported that seismic activity at Karymsky was above background levels during 3-10 October. Possible explosions during 4-9 October may have generated ash plumes to an altitude of 4 km (13,100 ft) a.s.l. Analysis of satellite imagery revealed a thermal anomaly in the crater during 3-4 and 8-9 October and cloudy conditions on the other days. The Level of Concern Color Code remained at Orange.

Based on analysis of satellite imagery and information from KEMSD, the Tokyo VAAC reported that an eruption generated a plume to an altitude of 3.4 km (11,000 ft) a.s.l. on 11 October.
