Karymsky volcano (Kamchatka) - tour potos Sep 2018

Images were taken during 11-14 Sep when we stayed in the volcanologists'station at remote Karymsky volcano as part of our Kamchatka volcano expedition. The volcano had a large eruption the morning before we arrived, and then remained more or less calm during our stay, with only intense steaming and some minor ash emissions. Glow from the crater and still warm bombs visible on infrared camera were seen during the first night.

Even with long exposure at night, no glow is visible any more - probably the conduit has by now sealed itself well enough to prevent glow and/or very hot gasses to escape. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
