Shiveluch: New photos of the Lavadome

Yesterday new photos of the lava dome called Dolphin were published. They show the structure from the side and reveal that the dome is neither egg-shaped nor has anything in common with a dolphin. It is a spine, like the one known from Mount St. Helens. The last time such a structure grew there was in 2006 and the further development of the Shiveluch remains exciting. At the moment the Shiveluch on Kamchatka emits only a small amount of heat radiation.
