Strong explosive activity continues today at Bezymianny Volcano — located at the Central Kamchatka Depression, Russia — resulting in KVERT raising the Aviation Colour Code to Red.
The Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) in Tokyo warned of a volcanic ash plume rising to an estimated 33000 ft (10.1 km), or flight level 330, and moving 35 kts to the NW.
Particulates ejected to altitudes above 10km (32,800 feet), and into the stratosphere, have a direct cooling effect on the planet.
Bezymianny is a very active volcano with an eruptive history peppered with VEI 2 and 3 eruptions.
There is also a confirmed VEI 5 eruption in its recent past, beginning on Oct 22, 1955 and ending on Mar 01, 1957.

Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.
The recent global uptick in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, and the increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
