  Kamchatka

 

Kamchatka is a fast subduction zone (convergence rate of ~8 cm/year) that is known to generate M=9 earthquakes (the latest in 1952) and contains many very active volcanic systems. The IPGP researchers started to work in Kamchatka since 2013 in collaboration with the Kamchatka Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, with the Russian Geophysical Service, and with the Novosibirsk Institute of the Petroleum Geology and Geophysics. In 2013 and 2014, this group installed small-scale temporal seismic networks on the Gorely and the Tolbachik volcanoes, respectively. In 2015 in collaboration with GFZ (Germany), we started a large regional-scale temporary seismic experiment in the vicinity of the Klyuchevskoy group of volcanoes, installing 83 broadband seismic stations.
