Details for: Sarychev Peak
A cloudcap obscurs the dramatic, steep-walled summit crater of Sarychev volcano, one of the most active volcanoes of the Kuril Islands. Sarychev occupies the NW end of Matua Island in the central Kurils in this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the top). The andesitic central cone was constructed within a mostly buried 3-3.5 km wide caldera; an older volcano forms the SE part of the island (lower right). Fresh-looking lava flows descend all sides of Sarychev Peak. The small island of Toporkovyi is partially visible at the right-center.
