Details for: Rasshua
Clouds surround the elongated 6 x 13 km island of Rasshua in the central Kurils in this Space Shuttle image (with north to the lower left). The island contains overlapping central cones within a 6-km-wide caldera that cuts the northern and southern parts of the island and whose eastern margin is beyond the shoreline. The unvegetated central cone complex (left-center) is capped by two Holocene cones. The westernmost forms the 956 m high point of the island, and the easternmost has been active during historical time. NASA Space Shuttle image ISS005-E-6023, 2002 (http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/).
