Ugashik-Peulik reported activity





This is a questionable event.

Start:December 1814 Observed

Central eruption: BibCard
Eruption Type:Explosive
MaxVEI: 3 BibCard

Description: From Kisslinger (1983), translating Doroshin (1870): "At the time of the Russian advent to these parts it emitted flame. Around 1814 its summit collapsed with a rumble, covering the base with enormous boulders. For about a week after this event, vapor rose from almost the entire surface of the mountain." Miller (2004) qualifies this report, stating: "Because Mount Peulik is separated from other prominent active volcanic edifices in the region [see fig. 1 in original text], these reports [of activity in 1814 and 1852] are credible and may represent the most recent eruptions at the center."
