A steam plume rises from the summit of Kiska, one of the westernmost historically active volcanoes of the Aleutian Arc. Three sides of the volcano, including the northern side seen here, are bounded by steep cliffs up to 450 m high. A scoria cone on the flank formed in 1962 at the northern coast. Photo by E.V.
