Karymsky Volcano, Kamchatka

 (JPG) Karymsky Volcano, Kamchatka (622,816 bytes) ( 1,770 x 1,509 )
On December 19, 2006 ASTER captured this image of Karymsky volcano erupting in the Russian Far East. Karymsky is one of numerous active volcanoes on the Kamchatka peninsula in Russian Siberia. The hot spot on the volcano summit is highlighted in the thermal bands in red and yellow, as is an area of the southeast flank, possibly indicating a pyroclastic flow. An obvious ash track is seen as a triangular dark area covering the countryside to the east of the summit. The short white streak emanating ESE from the summit is probably a water vapor cloud. The image covers an area of 26.5 x 22.6 km, and is located near 54.1 degrees north latitude and 159.3 degrees east longitude.
