Geological Summary

The dacitic-to-rhyolitic Spokoiny stratovolcano lies immediately south of Ostry volcano and NE of Iktunup volcano in the northern Sredinny Range. The 2171-m-high volcano, also known as Kutina, was active during the early and mid-Holocene. Deposits from five eruptions during this interval have been documented, the last of which took place about 5400 years ago. Cinder cones are located on the western flank of the volcano, and lava flows from the symmetrical summit cone extend down drainages to both the east and west.

Three volcanoes in the northern Sredinny Range rise above the clouds in this helicopter view from the south. Spokoiny volcano is in the foreground, with snow-covered 2552-m-high Ostry (Ostraya) volcano, one of the highest volcanoes in the northern Sredinny Range, in the background. The rounded volcano on the west (left) flank of Ostry is an unnamed cone that was active during the Holocene.

MODVOLC - HIGP MODIS Thermal Alert System Using infrared satellite Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data, scientists at the Hawai'i Institute of Geophysics and Planetology, University of Hawai'i, developed an automated system called MODVOLC to map thermal hot-spots in near real time. For each MODIS image, the algorithm automatically scans each 1 km pixel within it to check for high-temperature hot-spots. When one is found the date, time, location, and intensity are recorded. MODIS looks at every square km of the Earth every 48 hours, once during the day and once during the night, and the presence of two MODIS sensors in space allows at least four hot-spot observations every two days. Each day updated global maps are compiled to display the locations of all hot spots detected in the previous 24 hours. There is a drop-down list with volcano names which allow users to 'zoom-in' and examine the distribution of hot-spots at a variety of spatial scales.
MIROVA Middle InfraRed Observation of Volcanic Activity (MIROVA) is a near real time volcanic hot-spot detection system based on the analysis of MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) data. In particular, MIROVA uses the Middle InfraRed Radiation (MIR), measured over target volcanoes, in order to detect, locate and measure the heat radiation sourced from volcanic activity.
