Photo Gallery

Milne volcano, the southernmost on Simushir Island, lies immediately SE of the somma of Goriaschaia volcano (far left) in this Space Shuttle image (with north to the upper left). The walls of a 3-km-wide Pleistocene caldera breached widely to the sea are prominent on the right side of the image. The small, mostly snow-free central cone near the caldera headwall is capped by a lava dome that was constructed within the caldera during postglacial time and forms the highest point on Simushir Island.

Two overlapping volcanoes anchor the SW end of Simushir Island, Goriaschaia Sopka and Milne. Goriaschaia Sopka (top) is a young, historically active lava dome that has been the source of youthful lava flows whose margins are visible on the volcano's flanks and form the irregular shoreline at the top of this NASA Space Shuttle image. The dome is located within a large horseshoe-shaped crater cutting the NW flank of the older Igla Mountain volcano. Milne is the large snow-capped stratovolcano immediately to the SE of Goriaschaia Sopka.
