The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Vernadskii Ridge. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Vernadskii Ridge 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.

Photo Gallery


The Vernadskii Ridge descends diagonally across this Space Shuttle image of northern Paramushir Island (with north to the upper right). The historically active Ebeko volcano lies at the far upper right, north of the linear chain of the Vernadskii (south) and Bogdanovich (north) volcano groups, consisting of small cones and lava domes. The three large smooth-textured surfaces along the Pacific coast of Paramushir opposite the western side of Shumshu Island (far lower right) are preglacial Pleistocene lava flows.
