Berutarube is an andesitic-to-dacitic stratovolcano on the SW tip of Iturup Island (Kuriles). It has gentle slopes which are deeply eroded by glacial valleys. Funaroles and sufur deposits occur in the inner walls of the central crater.
A low saddle on the NE side separates Berutarube volcano from the Lvinaya Past caldera. The only known activity at Berutarube volcano within the past 10,000 years built a small cinder cone on the intersecting headwalls of U-shaped valleys and cirques in the eroded summit region. The hydrothermally altered summit cone fed 2 small lava flows.
