Karymsky, Russia

KVERT reported that seismic activity at Karymsky was above background levels during 31 October and 2-3 November and at background levels on the other days during 1-7 November. Possible explosions on 31 October, and 2 and 3 November may have generated ash plumes to an altitude of 3.8 km (12,500 ft) a.s.l. Analysis of satellite imagery revealed a thermal anomaly in the crater on 31 October, and 2 and 6 November; clouds prevented observations 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 3.7 km (12,000 ft) a.s.l. on 11 November.
