Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Kuttara
Lake Kuttara fills the 3-km-wide Kuttara caldera, which was formed during major late-Pleistocene explosive eruptions. Pumice-rich pyroclastic-flow deposits from this eruption blanket a wide area around the volcano. Post-caldera volcanism has constructed a group of explosion craters and a lava dome on the western flank of the caldera. The latest eruption consisted of a phreatic explosion from one of the west-flank craters that postdates the 1663 eruption of nearby Usu volcano. Photo by Mihoko Moriizumi, 1995 (Hokkaido University).
