As reported last week, scientists are growing increasingly concerned with the unusual behavior of volcanoes in Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula. Today comes the news that Bezymianny has just popped-off in “vigorous” fashion.
According to a spokesman for the Kamchatka branch of the geophysical service, the eruption of Bezymianny began at 08:22 local time (23:22 Moscow time, Wednesday).
“According to preliminary estimates, the volcano spewed ash to an altitude of ten kilometres (32,800 feet). An autonomous video surveillance camera at the Kirishev station recorded the beginning of the eruption. Since the volcano is currently partially covered by clouds, more exact information about the eruption will be available when we receive data from satellites,” the spokesman said Thursday — the final altitude could well have been higher.
Below is the Kirishev station surveillance footage capturing the beginning of the eruption:
The footage was also used in this NMG news report:
As reported by volcanodiscovery.com, the Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Tokyo documented: “a vigorous eruption at the volcano today characterized by vulcanian-type explosion [and] a dense dark ash plume”. The Center added that the ash drifted south in the high-altitude winds where, as reported by sputniknews.com, the larger particulates fell and covered two settlements in Kamchatka Territory.
Back in mid-September of this year, KVERT reported that a new lava dome was growing in Bezymianny’s inner summit crater: “During 28-31 August and on 4, 8 and 10 September a thermal anomaly was detected in satellite images (shown below) — this recent eruption looks to have been a release of this building pressure.
Volcanic eruptions are one of the key forcings driving Earth into its next bout of global cooling. Volcanic ash (particulates) fired above 32,800ft (10km) –and so into the stratosphere– shade sunlight and reduce terrestrial temperatures. The smaller particulates from an eruption can linger in the upper atmosphere for years, or even decades+ at a time.
Bezymianny is located in the central part of the Klyuchevskaya group, on the southeast slope of the extinct volcano Kamen. It is a tall stratovolcano, with an eruptive history peppered with VEI 2s and 3s.
Information provided by tass.com reveals that “Bezymianny” actually means “nameless,” and that the volcano was considered extinct before its powerful VEI 5 eruption back in 1955 — an event that lowered the top of the mountain by 280m/920ft (from 3,080 to 2,800 meters).
Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in the Sun.
Their worldwide uptick (along with a seismic uptick) is tied to low solar activity, coronal holes, a waning magnetosphere, and the influx of Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
