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 Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Asacha. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Asacha page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

Photo Gallery

The glacier-filled southern summit crater of Mutnovsky volcano is seen here from the NE with Asacha volcano in the right distance. This crater is part of a 1.5 x 2.1 km wide double crater with steep walls 50-250-m high that caps the summits of northern and southern Mutnovsky stratovolcanoes. Four smaller craters cut the northern rims of the double summit crater complex. A vigorous steam plume rises from the historically active crater, which cuts the western rim of northern Mutnovsky crater.

The Asacha volcano group is seen here looking WSW from the slopes of Mutnovsky volcano. Most of the complex was constructed during the Pleistocene, but some of a group of ten lava domes dotting the flanks of the complex may be early Holocene in age. Also during the Holocene, basaltic cinder cones and lava flows related to regional volcanism were erupted along the western and southern flanks of the Asacha complex.
