Eruptions

Continuing eruptions at Shiveluch

One of Kamchatka’s most active volcanoes is continuing to erupt. Shiveluch, in the northern part of the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia, produced a 26,000 foot (~8,000 meter) ash column today (November 6) as the eruptions that started in 2006 persist. The reports suggest little danger to people living on the peninsula, however the ash column is causing problems with the air travel over the region (an important corridor for trans-Pacific travel).

    Hi — Just a civilian, but I love your site as I am a geology/EQ/volcano fangirl. Was wondering if you had a link, an address — a something — where I might get a copy of the spectacular 1998 (?) calendar featuring the volcanos of Kamchatka. Thanks for your time, your work and the great nerd fun.

    Sincerely,
    Molly
