An aerial view from the SW on 22 July 1996 shows an ash plume rising above the summit crater of Karymsky with Maly Semyachik behind it. The 1996 eruption began on 2 January simultaneously with an eruption at nearby Akademia Nauk caldera, out of view to the right. The Akademia Nauk eruption lasted only a day, but long-term eruptions continued at Karymsky.
