Seismological Studies of the Giant Volcanoes of Kamchatka (Russia)
An international team of geophysicists from France and Russia have completed a seismological survey of the Kluchevskoy Volcanao Group. They measured the activity between 1 to 10 km below the surface, at the boundary between the Earth's crust and upper mantle. In an initial data release, the researchers found that a few weeks or months in advance of surface activity, the deep magnetic reservoirs become active. Whether or not this could be used for volcanic forecasting remains to be seen. The rest of their data and research will be published near to the end of 2017.
