Chirinkotan volcano is a large, mostly submerged stratovolcano forming a small largely unvegetated and 3 km wide island in the Kuril Island chain. It is located at the far end of an E-W-trending volcanic chain that extends nearly 50 km west of the central part of the main Kuril Islands arc.
The volcano is one of the Kurile's most active. Historical eruptions included lava flows on the SE flank during an eruption in the 1880s and were observed by the English fur trader Captain Snow.

What type of activity exactly is occurring at the remote volcano is unknown - there is no monitoring from ground and the typically bad weather with dense cloud cover allows only rarely to retrieve cloud-free satellite images.

This suggests that there is no lava flow or active dome and that the sporadic (about 3 or 4 since November 2016), but often powerful explosions could be phreatic or hydrothermal in nature. [less]
