The Karpinsky Group, seen here from the south, consists of three Holocene volcanic centers at the southern end of the Karpinsky Ridge in the southern part of Paramushir Island. The southern cone forms the high point of the Karpinsky massif and produced lava flows to the SE and west. The NW cone has hot springs and sulfur cones containing boiling sulfur-rich waters.
