Signs point to impending eruption of Kanchatka volcano

This is an anomaly, say scientists.

10 Oct 2020 – Scientists are concerned about the unusual behavior of the Klyuchevskaya volcano in Kamchatka. As a rule, a year passes between its eruptions, but this time it showed activity just two months after the previous eruption. On October 5, night surveillance cameras recorded the outpouring of a lava flow from the summit crater of Klyuchevsky.

“These are very strong eruptions, when the Klyuchevsky crater is emptying. The last paroxysmal eruption was in 2013, before that – in 1994. But until now we have not seen such an intensity of tremors to speak of an approaching paroxystic eruption,” says expert.

All this testifies to the impending new eruption. The uncharacteristic behavior of Klyuchevsky can lead to paroxysmal events, according to the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology of the Far East Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. What this means, the METEO portal clarified with the head of the Kamchatka branch of the Geophysical Service of the Russian Academy of Sciences Seregy Senyukov.

However, scientists will take a closer look at the atypical behavior of the system.
