 (JPG) Kliuchevskoi (400,306 bytes) ( 1,734 x 1,686 )
Kliuchevskoi is Kamchatka‘«÷s highest (4,835 m) and most active volcano. The Russian stratovolcano produces frequent moderate-volume explosive and effusive eruptions, often producing large eruption plumes. These plumes pose a serious risk to air traffic, and are constantly monitored by the Alaska Volcano Observatory. In mid-February, lava flows were erupted on the NW flank of the volcano, melting part of the Ehrman glacier, and producing mudflows. In this ASTER image acquired February 24, the hot lava flows are picked up in the thermal infrared bands, The eruptive plume extends to the northeast. At the same time, a plume can be seen coming from Shiveluch volcano located about 10 km to the southwest. And finally, the lava dome atop Bezymianny volcano (lower center) shows several hot pixels, and a weak gas and ash plume. The scene covers an area of 26 x 25.3 km, and is centered near 56 degrees north latitude, 160.6 degrees east longitude.
