Most Dangerous Volcano of Kamchatka to be Studied
The Bezymyanny volcano

Russian and American volcanologists prepare for massive studies of the Bezymyanny volcano, located at the Kamchatka Peninsula.
      During one month a group of researchers will install special equipment on the slopes of the volcano. The expedition is aimed at studying mechanisms of eruptions and other activities of this volcano, which is considered to be most dangerous of 29 active volcano of Kamchatka.
      The Bezymyanny volcano behaves like a highly explosive substance. The volcano erupts twice a year and always brings troubles. During eruptions ash reaches 18-km heights, and ashy tails stretch for thousands of kilometers. All this is quire dangerous for aviation, since transcontinental air paths lie very close to the place, where the fire-spitting mountain is located.
      The Bezymyanny volcanos ill fame started in 1956, when during the eruption ash reached 40 km, and mudflows filled the Kamchatka river.
