Details for: Ksudach
Ksudach is unique among Kamchatka volcanoes in its morphology and geologic history. The large, low-angle stratovolcano, seen here from the SW, is truncated by an intricate complex of five calderas. The northern of two caldera lakes (center) forms an embayment in Stubel Crater, a low-angle cone that began forming about 1600 years ago in the youngest caldera, Ksudach V. The only historical eruption of Ksudach, in 1907, originated from Stubel Crater and was one of Kamchatka's largest in historical time.
