Photo Gallery


The large glacier-covered volcano near the center of this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top) is Snegovoy, a 2169-m-high late-Quaternary Icelandic-type shield volcano, whose name means "snowy peak," topped by a small basaltic stratovolcano. It was constructed east of the crest of the Sredinny Range about 10 km ENE of Ostry volcano, visible at the lower left. The river at the upper right is Hayluliya.
