“There are certain rules of flight over the eruption and lava flow above. Keep a safe height. The helicopter lost control,” says helicopter pilot Vladimir Kovalevsky.

Base camp, scientists break a short distance from the fire edge. This new crater in the side slope of Tolbachik was formed during the current eruption. In the subsoil thereof – the lake of boiling lava. For volcanologists is a whole lot of work. It is necessary to study the chemical composition of the magma and to take the analysis of samples of volcanic rocks. First of all, interested in the mineral tolbachic.
