Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Opala
The prominent conical Opala volcano, seen here from the east, lies about 50 km west of the main volcanic arc in southern Kamchatka. The 2475-m-high stratovolcano was constructed at the north end of the 10 x 12 km, 40,000-year-old Opala caldera. Post-caldera Holocene volcanism also included the extrusion of lava domes and rhyolitic lava flows. The latest major explosion formed the Barany amphitheater on the SE flank about 1500 years ago. Mild explosive eruptions of uncertain validity have been reported in historical time. Photo by Andrei Tsvetkov.
