Kizimen volcano in Kamchatka, Russia is an isolated stratovolcano, with a summit elevation of 2400 m. The summit consists of overlapping lava domes. In the last few months, Kizimen has erupted sporadically, sending eruption plumes as high as 3 km, and drifting more than 170 km. On February 25, a large ash-laden eruption plume can be seen, drifting towards the northeast. Thermal data (red) shows the presence of recent hot block-and-ash flows from summit dome collapses. The data cover an area of 42 x 42km, and are located at 55.2 degrees north latitude, 160.5 degrees east longitude.
