Ash clouds delayed air travel world wide
Coordinates: 56.0560° N, 160.6441° E
Closest City: Klyuchi, Russia
Highly Volcanicly Active Area
Volcanic Chains Formed at Subduction Zones
Boundary where the older, denser plate, in pushed under the opposing plate
Felsic-thick "nacho cheese", slow moving, high in scilica, forms light colored rocks, forms cinder volcanos
Temperature drops in surrounding area
(Its Russia, could it really get any colder....)
Effects lasting several days
Only deaths, those climbing to the summit at time of eruption
Average Time of Highest Activity: Between February and November
