Increasing activity of Volcano:
the collapse on June 12 (A) and autoexplosive avalanches on June 24 (B) and 25 (C), 1985
The pyroclastic flow on the evening of June 30, 1985. The photography was made from small hill (the north spurs of Ziminy Volcanos - see the point 6 on scheme of eruption or the point 5 on scheme of Apakhonchich disposition). The twilights hide relief and perspective. Shortest distance up to flow is 2 kms, and it front is on distance about 5 km..
|Above - Jule 1, 1985. Pyroclastic flows
blocked the channel of small river
(the point 4 on the scheme). Water from mountains
became the cause for repeated explosions on
hot deposits of pyroclastic flows.
At the left - the day after: water wins a victory.
Photos was made from the point 6 on the scheme
The heels of two expeditionary lodges situated not far from dome (the
point 2 on the scheme) and destroyed by eruption.
One of the lodges sustained previous eruptions during more than twenty years.
The scheme of eruption at June 30 - Jule 1, 1985
The gigantic crater in the dome structure was formed during the June
29 - July 2 eruption (at the upper left).
However the eruption didn't ended on this - the pressing of red hot juvenile material was continued in crater's upper part.
In night the red hot material's collapses were accompanied by glow (at the upper right and at the bottom).
The continued pressing of juvenile lava material resulted in the forming of two lava flows (in August and in December).
