And more Russian volcanoes. Shiveluch has been erupting for some time now but here is a picture of the latest.

VLADIVOSTOK, December 03. /ITAR-TASS/. There was a powerful eruption of the Shiveluch volcano in Kamchatka on Tuesday: the volcano ejected ash from its crater to a height of 10 kilometers. Experts of the volcanology observatory of the Klyuchi settlement told Itar-Tass by telephone that “something incredible is happening on Shiveluch.”


The article gives more information on the growth of the dome at Shiveluch.

The Kamchatka syndrome: chasing jackpots

Slideshow of lots of Kamchatka volcanoes


“It was not I who chose Kamchatka, but Kamchatka that chose me, and it is my mission to show this place to people,” said Irina Daletskaya, a beautiful and elegant woman, whom visitors find hard to imagine braving snowstorms and cold in the wild north.

“It is a unique, pristine region. I think this is how our planet must have looked when life began here,” Daletskaya continued, with passion. “It is a kind of open-air museum, only you need a helicopter to reach the exhibits.”

Daletskaya dreamed of going to Kamchatka while she was studying geology at Kiev University. “In the few photographs available at the time, I was struck by this fantastic land. It became the only place on the planet to draw me like a magnet,” she said. After earning enough to support herself by participating in a northern expedition, Daletskaya set out in search of her dream, carrying a camera.

During that expedition, Daletskaya met Dr. Alexander Svetlovsky, a volcanologist who was impressed by the young geologist’s skill in capturing the beauty of nature in the crisp frame of a photograph. He brought Daletskaya along as a photographer on an expedition he arranged to Kamchatka's live volcanoes. On that trip, Daletskaya worked with the eminent Soviet photographer Vadim Gippenreiter, who became her mentor.

I will take the helm if no one else wants to, and Muzzy wants to carry on hosting Quake Watch. If anyone else wants to host Volcano Watch next year let Alysha or myself know.

BYU geologists discover 'super volcano' in Utah


Read more


Geologists at Brigham Young University have discovered what may be the world's largest "super" volcano that erupted in Utah's own backyard.

While there are a variety of volcanoes that blast away in different ways, super volcanic eruptions are the biggest that collapse into large calderas. Yellowstone Park is the remains of one of those calderas and it's still very much alive and active.

But, geologists think they may have found an equally as big if not bigger super volcano, one that shook up western Utah and eastern Nevada 30 million years ago. The eruption is hardly visible to the naked eye now, but underneath and in surrounding formations, the evidence was waiting to be uncovered.


It's dead Jim so its not going to blow it!

I am sure that in the past there have been equally large eruptions that are probably not under water or the traces of which have been covered over, but it was a biggie @~6000 cu km.

i know its an old article but it bears some insight and attention, rt.com...

The anticipated North Korean third nuclear test may trigger an eruption of Mt. Baekdu, a dormant volcano, which is located not far from the North Korean Punggye-ri nuclear site, claims a South Korean geologist.

I guess I'll plop this here since it is still 2013.

According to Erik Klemetti's Eruptions blog, San Miguel volcano in El Salvador erupted spectacularly today.

The most recent Washington VAAC describes the volcanic ash being at flight level 22,000 feet.
Over 5000 people nearest San Miguel have been evacuated.

The government had a webcam which caught the eruption:

You crack me up. Magmagasm! I know, right? Etna, San Miguel, what next?

So I dug up the El Salvadorian volcanism page SNET.
When I followed the links for Monitoring, it looks like they once had a working webcam and spectrograms, but the links seem to be broken at the moment.


Aha! It is possible to load a nearby seismo in GEE: add network SV, then load station PACA, channel HHZ
