Photo Gallery


The peak at the center of this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top) is Ostry. This late-Quaternary stratovolcano, whose name means "Sharp Peak," rises to 2552 m, forming one of the highest peaks of the northern Sredinny Range. Ostry lies WSW of the broad glacier-covered Snegovoy volcano (upper right). The smaller Kutina stratovolcano (bottom-center) is located immediately to the south of Ostry.

An unnamed 2127-m-high cinder cone on the SW flank of Ostry is seen here from the west. The cone, informally referred to as "Cone X," erupted about 4000 years ago, producing a basaltic lava flow.

Snow-capped, conical Ostry volcano, seen here from the NW, rises to 2552 m. Ostry, whose name means "Sharp Peak," forms one of the highest peaks of the northern Sredinny Range. On the right horizon is an unnamed 2127-m-high cone on the SW flank of Ostry, informally referred to as "Cone X," which erupted about 4000 years ago, producing a basaltic lava flow.

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.
