TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation
Milna volcano is the southernmost active volcano on Simushir Island, Kurile Islands. It is located immediately SE of the truncated remnant (somma) of Goiaschaia volcano's old cone.
Milna volcano has a 3 km wide caldera breached to the south and steep flanks with deep erosion gullies. In the ice age, the caldera contained a glacier. A young cone with an andesitic dome was built inside the caldera during the past 10,000 years and now forms the highest point of the island. Lava flows of unknown age from this vent have reached the sea in 4-5 km distance.
