Image Caption: 10/09/94, after snowstorm Volcanoes- Evans

Klyuchevskaya, Kamchatka (35 mm format) The major eruption that began
September 30 (thought to be Klyuchevskaya's largest in the past 40
years) disrupted air traffic across N. Pacific. The eruption cloud
reached 60,000 ft above sea level, and the winds carried ash as far as
640 miles SE from the volcano into the north Pacific air routes --
impacting the route travelled by up to 70 flights per day (10,000

The sequence of photos is exciting to the radar scientists because it
represents the first time to image through and ash cloud, as well as
providing a rapid series of changes to image. Geologists world-wide,
including those in Alaska and Kamchatka are anxious to receive this
unprecedented documentation of a major eruption.
