An ash plume rises above the North crater of Ebeko volcano, located at the northern end of Paramushir Island, on 9 September 1989. An explosive eruption that began on 2 February 1989 continued until April 1990. Three summit craters located along a SSW-NNE line form the main edifice at the northern end of a complex consisting of five cones. Historical activity, recorded since the late-18th century, has included small-to-moderate explosive eruptions from the summit craters.
