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).

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

Photo Gallery

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.
