Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Sashiusudake [Baransky]
The SE slopes of Baransky volcano tower above steep sea cliffs along the Pacific Ocean coast of Iturup Island. Lava flows from Baransky (also known as Sashiusu-dake) descended 4-5 km SE to reach the Pacific Ocean along a broad front north of the location of this photo. The only historical eruption consisted of weak explosive activity at the summit in 1951. Strong solfataric activity continues from the summit and flank craters, and the SW-flank geothermal field contains hot springs and geysers.
