Photo Gallery

This shaded relief perspective looking east at the Sredinny Range, with the Amanina River along the western coast of Kamchatka in the foreground, was generated using topographic data from the NASA Shuttle Radar Topography Mission. The rounded volcano on the left horizon is Shishel, a prominent glacier-capped, 2525-m-high late-Quaternary Icelandic-type shield volcano located at the crest of the central Sredinny Range. Small cinder cones are located south and SW of Shishel, and a major lava field is located on its NE flank.
