Sunday, Nov 20, 2016
Two powerful explosions occurred at the volcano on 20 Nov - apparently with no warning - and produced an ash plume that rose to almost 10 km altitude and drifted more than 200 km to the east before dissipating. No damages were reported (there are no significant settlements nearby), but the ash plume was dangerous for N-America - Asia air traffic routes. ... [more]

Background:

The Zhupanovsky volcanic massif consists of four overlapping stratovolcanoes along a WNW-trending ridge. The elongated volcanic complex was constructed within a Pliocene-early Pleistocene caldera whose rim is exposed only on the eastern side. Three of the stratovolcanoes were built during the Pleistocene, the fourth is Holocene in age and was the source of all of Zhupanovsky's historical eruptions. An early Holocene stage of frequent moderate and weak eruptions from 7000 to 5000 years before present (BP) was succeeded by a period of infrequent larger eruptions that produced pyroclastic flows. The last major eruption of Zhupanovsky took place about 800-900 years BP. Historical eruptions have consisted of relatively minor explosions from the third cone.
