Archive image of Karymsky with plume of steam and ash.
Far East Russia’s Karymsky volcano spewed ash high above the Kamchatka peninsula.

Karymsky has erupted more than 30 times since its first historic eruption in 1771, with most of the activity being moderate in size and strength.

Almost all of its distinctive cone is mantled by lava flows that are less than 200 years old.
