Eruption of Chikurachki Volcano in Kuril Islands

Eruption of Chikurachki Volcano in Kuril Islands

On April 25, 2003, the Chikurachki Volcano was continuing to erupt in the Kuril Islands between Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula and Japan. The streamer of gray ash can be seen blowing southward over the Pacific Ocean in this Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) from the Terra satellite.
