Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Fuss Peak
The dramatic symmetrical cone of Fuss Peak forms a peninsula on the SW coast of Paramushir Island, the largest of the Kurils. This isolated 1772-m-high stratovolcano has a 700-m-wide, steep-walled crater that is 300 m deep. The NW rim of the crater is deeply notched to the level of the crater floor, which is drained by the canyon that is seen here descending diagonally to the right as far as the coast. Only one unambiguous historical eruption is known from Fuss Peak, in 1854. Photo by Yoshihiro Ishizuka, 2000 (Hokkaido University).
