Sheveluch Volcano. Monitoring
Aviation Color Code:
ORANGE 
Current State: An extrusive-effusive eruption of the Young Sheveluch volcano continues: a lava is extruded out in the explosive crater. The growth of a new lava dome, called “300 years of RAS” (the Russian Academy of Sciences) (preliminary name Karan-1), continues on the southwestern slope of the Old Sheveluch volcano. The growth of the domes are accompanied by powerful gas-steam activity. According to KVERT satellite data, thermal anomalies were observed in the areas of both domes on 12-15, and 18 July; the volcanoes were obscured by clouds in the other days of the week. 
Danger Prognosis for Aviation: An extrusive-effusive eruption of the Young Sheveluch volcano continues. A danger of ash explosions up to 6 km (19,700 ft) a.s.l. remains. Ongoing activity could affect low-flying aircraft. A growth of the new lava dome “300 years of RAS” on the southwestern slope of Old Sheveluch volcano continues. No powerful explosions of the dome are expected within a week. Ongoing activity could affect low-flying aircraft.
