Shiveluch Volcano

Shiveluch is a 3,282 meters high stratovolcano located on the eastern range at the junction of Kuril-Kamchatka archs and Aleutian Islands, about 50km away from Klyuchi village and 450km away from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. It is one of the three volcanoes in Kamchatka (with Taunshits and Bezymianny) that can go through “plinian” eruptions marked by a significant amount of volcanic ashes and volcanic rocks (pumice). In 2011, its activity was almost constant throughout the year. Because of the many eruption columns, some reaching 8.5km high and more, the volcano was placed in orange alert by the air security.
