Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Kharimkotan
The east side of the 8 x 12 km island of Kharimkotan (also spelled Harimkotan) is cut by a large horseshoe-shaped caldera that was formed when the summit of the volcano collapsed in 1933. The dark-colored lava dome in the center of the photo was emplaced inside the breached depression at the end of the 1933 eruption. This and another horseshoe-shaped crater on the NW side of the island were formed by slope failure, which produced debris-avalanche deposits that form large broad peninsulas on the east and NW coasts.
