Geological Summary

The Nishihitokappuyama [Bogatyr Ridge] volcano on Iturup Island in the southern Kuriles consists of a cluster of small NE-SW-trending late-Pleistocene to Holocene cones and craters, along with the larger Stokap stratovolcano at the SW end of the ridge. The basaltic-andesite to andesitic Stokap is capped by a complex of 8-10 cones and explosion craters, the largest of which contains a lake. The volcanic chain was constructed over a high Pleistocene base, whose glaciated surface is covered by lava flows from Stokap that reach to both the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Okhotsk. No historical eruptions are known from the volcanic chain.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Nishihitokappuyama [Bogatyr Ridge]. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Nishihitokappuyama [Bogatyr Ridge] page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

The Bogatyr Ridge, seen here looking southward across Iturup Island, consists of a cluster of small NE-SW-trending late-Pleistocene to Holocene cones and craters. The larger Stokap stratovolcano (upper left) occupies the SW end of the ridge. Stokap volcano is capped by a complex of 8-10 cones and explosion craters, the largest of which contains a lake. The volcanic chain was constructed over a high Pleistocene base of glaciated Pleistocene volcanic rocks. No historical eruptions are known from the volcanic chain.

Snow-capped Stokap volcano (center) lies at the SW end of Bogatyr Ridge, an elongated chain of small volcanoes on southern Iturup Island. Bogatyr Ridge (left of Stokap) consists of a cluster of small NE-SW-trending late-Pleistocene to Holocene cones and craters. Stokap volcano is capped by a complex of 8-10 cones and explosion craters, the largest of which contains a lake. The slopes of conical Atsonupuri volcano form the ridge in the right foreground.

MODVOLC - HIGP MODIS Thermal Alert System Using infrared satellite Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data, scientists at the Hawai'i Institute of Geophysics and Planetology, University of Hawai'i, developed an automated system called MODVOLC to map thermal hot-spots in near real time. For each MODIS image, the algorithm automatically scans each 1 km pixel within it to check for high-temperature hot-spots. When one is found the date, time, location, and intensity are recorded. MODIS looks at every square km of the Earth every 48 hours, once during the day and once during the night, and the presence of two MODIS sensors in space allows at least four hot-spot observations every two days. Each day updated global maps are compiled to display the locations of all hot spots detected in the previous 24 hours. There is a drop-down list with volcano names which allow users to 'zoom-in' and examine the distribution of hot-spots at a variety of spatial scales.
MIROVA Middle InfraRed Observation of Volcanic Activity (MIROVA) is a near real time volcanic hot-spot detection system based on the analysis of MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) data. In particular, MIROVA uses the Middle InfraRed Radiation (MIR), measured over target volcanoes, in order to detect, locate and measure the heat radiation sourced from volcanic activity.
