  Klyuchevskaya, Volcano, Kamchatka Peninsula, CIS (56.0N, 160.5E) is one of 
  several active volcanoes in the CIS and is 15,584 ft. in elevation.  Fresh 
  ash fall on the south side of the caldera can be seen as a dirty smudge on 
  the fresh snowfall.  Just to the north of the Kamchatka River is Shiveluch, 
  a volcano which had been active a short time previously.  There are more
  than  100 volcanic edifices recognized on Kamchatka, 15 of which are still
