Smirnov Vulkan

Schichtvulkan 1189 m / 3,901 ft
Kunashir, Kurilen, 44.42°N / 146.14°E
Aktueller Status: normal / ruhend (1 von 5) | Berichte
Smirnov Vulkan-Bücher
Typische Aktivität: explosive & effusive
Ausbrüche des Smirnov: 1900(?), 1880 No recent earthquakes
UhrzeitMag. / TiefeDistanceOrt
Smirnov volcano is an active andesitic stratovolcano on the NW tip of Kunashir Island in the Kuriles, Russia. The gently sloped and glacially eroded volcano is located immediately west of Tiatia volcano.

Beschreibung:

The northern flank of Smirnov is still partly intact, while the southern side has been eroded by glaciers, where its oldest rocks are now exposed.
Inside a wide glacial valley on the SE side there is a cinder cone and an associated 4 km long lava flow. Another pyroclastic cone is located at the base of the valley near the end of the lava flow.
2 fresh-looking lava domes less than 10,000 years old are found in a glacial valley on the north side. On the NW side Smirnov overlies the older edifice of andesitic-to-dacitic Rurui volcano. Rurui volcano still has an active fumarole field on its western flank and might not be completely extinct.
