The light-colored, smooth-textured volcano near the right-center margin of this NASA Space Shuttle Mission image is Titila. This small late-Quaternary Icelandic-type basaltic to basaltic-andesite shield volcano lies east of the eroded Pleistocene Shlen volcano (far left). Lava flows radiate from two E-W-trending summit craters of Titila, and cinder cones are prominent on its southern flank.

The volcano near the center of this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top) overlooking the NW shore of Lake Glubokoye ("Deep Lake") is Titila. This small late-Quaternary Icelandic-type basaltic to basaltic-andesite shield volcano lies west of the crest of the central Sredinny Range. Lava flows radiate from two E-W-trending summit craters of Titila, and cinder cones were constructed on its southern flank.

Titila shield volcano is viewed from the south. Titila started to form in the late Pleistocene. The volcano was active about 10,000-8000 and 3000-2500 years ago. A flank vent (forming the summit to the right of Titila) was formed in the early Holocene. Its lava flows dammed a river to form Glubokoe ("Deep") Lake (at the far right).
