The new seismic station installed near volcano Tolbachik

 Seismologists installed in Tolbachik volcano in Kamchatka mobile seismic stations, which will run until the end of the eruption, according to the Kamchatka volcano.

Flat Tolbachik began erupting on 27 November. In the area of the southern slope formed two fractured breakthrough with Lava — a stream of top-break was more than six kilometers from the bottom — 18 kilometers. Periodically over the volcano ash column rises.

Group of Volcanology and Seismology, made on the eve of Aerial circled Tolbachik eruption, in which to obtain the latest data on the activity of the volcano, installed a new seismic station.

"Circling the eruption showed the following: eruption continues, the lava flow to the south-east of the cone stopped showering (or left in the lava tube). Cinder cone at the foot of the south-west side appeared bocca (hole) from which poured a small lava flow. Maybe will continue to work only this bocca. in the crater continued emissions of hot material at a height of 200 meters, "- said in a statement.

Bubbling volcanic lava flowed 17 kilometers and flooded the mountains of Kamchatka

According to volcanologists, the eruption continues in quiet mode. The crater is lava lake, which emit hot material with a strong roar and noise. The relief of the surrounding area because of strong izzelenilsya lava piles up to 15 meters.

The last eruption of the volcano Tolbachik called Great Tolbachik Fissure eruption occurred in 1975-76. It was the first in the history of Russian science, which is able to predict precisely. The eruption changed the topography of the surrounding area and cause local ecological disaster — the deaths of all living things at a distance of tens of kilometers from the volcano.

Tolbachik consists of two volcanoes — Flat Tolbachik (3.085 thousand meters altitude) and acute Tolbachik (3.682 thousand meters). The nearest town — City Keys — removed from the foot of the volcano 60 kilometers.
