Details for: Kanaga
Snowcapped symmetrical Kanaga stratovolcano is situated within the Kanaton caldera at the northern tip of Kanaga Island. The rim of Kanaton caldera forms a 760-m-high arcuate ridge, which can be seen south and east (left) of Kanaga. Several fresh lava flows from historical or late prehistorical time descend the flanks of the volcano. An eruptive period from mid-1993 through 1995 produced the two freshest-looking flows, which reached the coast on either side of the sea cliffs at the lower center.
