Introduction

Zavodovski Island is formed by a single 551-m-high basaltic stratovolcano which has 2 flank cones on the east side. Mount Curry forms the island's summit west of the center of the island. 2 fissures extend NE from Mt Curry towards the east-flank craters, and a lava platform is located along the eastern coast.
Zavodovski is the most frequently visited of the South Sandwich Islands. It was erupting when first seen in 1819 by the explorer Bellingshausen, and the volcano has been reported to be smoking during subsequent visits. (GVP volcano information)
