Karymsky Volcano has erupted regularly for more than ten years; this natural-color satellite image shows its typical low-level activity. A white gas plume rises above Karmymsky’s summit, and fresh volcanic material coats the eastern slopes. This image was acquired by the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) aboard the Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite on May 3, 2012.
