Photo Gallery

The dramatic symmetrical cone of Prevo Peak in central Simishir Island is seen in this Space Shuttle image (with north to the lower left). The conical volcano, also known as Simushiru-Fuji for its resemblance to Japan's noted volcano, is capped by a 450 x 600 m wide summit crater. Young-looking lava flows reach both coasts of central Simushir Island. Only two eruptions are known from Prevo Peak in historical time. The flanks of the Pleistocene Ikanmikot volcano appear at the far right.
