SHEVELUCH VOLCANO (1000-27)
56°38'N, 161°19'E; Elevation 3,283 m, the dome elevation ~8,200 ft (~2,500 m)
AVIATION COLOR CODE IS ORANGE
Explosive-extrusive-effusive eruption of the volcano continues. Ash explosions up to 32,800 ft (10 km) ASL could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.
Explosive activity of the volcano continued: seismic data and visual observation showed ash plumes rose up to 32,800 ft and 16,400 ft (10.0 km and 5.0 km) a.s.l. on May 05 and 06-08, respectively. According to visual and satellite data, a viscous lava flow continues to effuse into the explosive crater of 2010 eruption, an incandescent of the lava dome and strong and moderate fumarolic activity accompanies the lava flow effusion. Ash plumes extended for about 500 mi (800 km) to the south-east of the volcano on May 05. Ash cloud was observed in 95 km to the south-east of the volcano on May 07. A thermal anomaly over the lava dome was noted on May 03-05 and 08-10.
