Geological Summary

The Ivao group of cones along the Krishtofovich Ridge of SW Urup Island contains several well-preserved cones of Holocene age. The first of a group of three young cones that formed along a NW-SE line is 1426-m-high Ivao cone, which marks the high point of Urup Island at the NW end of the chain. The SE-most cone bisects a glacial valley, forming Lake Ivao. The elongated central cone, Krutaya Mountain, is the youngest, and produced a viscous lava flow that traveled to the east.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Ivao Group. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Ivao Group 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 Ivao group of cones (left of center) occupies part of the Krishtofovich Ridge of SW Urup Island in this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the upper right). The 1426-m-high Ivao cone marks the high point of Urup Island. This young volcanic complex fed Holocene lava flows that traveled north to the Sea of Okhotsk. The youngest cone of the Ivao group, Krutaya Mountain, produced a viscous lava flow that traveled to the east.

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.
