Details for: Zavaritzki Caldera
Biryuzovoe caldera lake partially fills the youngest of three nested calderas truncating Zavaritzki volcano in central Simushir Island of the southern Kurils. The largest caldera is 10 km wide. The surface of the lake in the 3-km-wide youngest caldera is at about 40 m elevation, and its bottom lies about 30 m below sea level. The small lava dome below the bottom side of the lake in this International Space Station view (with north to the lower left) was emplaced during a 1957 eruption that decreased the size of the caldera lake.
