Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

Photo Gallery


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.
