Night view of eruption of Alaid Volcano, CIS Featured 20 Aug 1992 Print

Night view of eruption of Alaid Volcano, CIS

A geologist at night silhouetted against the eruption of Alaid volcano in 1988. Alaid is 2339 metres high, and forms the bulk of Ostrova Atlasova, an island in the Kuril chain north of Japan. An explosive eruption is in progress at the cone, with volcanic bombs leaving trails of light in the sky. These are clots of liquid lava, typically 40-50cm in diameter, that are thrown from an erupting vent. They are seen forming a bright ring of impacts near the central crater
