Background:

The heavily glaciated, 1984-m-high Recheschnoi stratovolcano is located ENE of a roughly 900-m-high saddle across from Vsevidof volcano. Recheschnoi consists of an elongated, NE-SW-trending ridge that is dissected by deep glacier-filled valleys. Erosion is more extensive at the NE end. Holocene andesitic pyroclastic cones and rhyolitic lava domes, the latter west of the head of Russian Bay, are situated on the east and west flanks of the volcano. The Geyser Bight geothermal area on the NE flank of Recheschnoi is one of the hottest and most extensive thermal areas in Alaska. It consists of six zones of thermal springs and two fumarolic areas along upper Geyser Creek and contains the only known geysers in the state. Other thermal areas occur at Hot Springs Cove and Partov Cove on the rugged isthmus between Recheschnoi and Okmok volcanoes.
