Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-10469

Milne, the southernmost volcano on Simushir Island, lies immediately SE of Goriaschaia volcano (far left) in this International Space Station image (N is to the upper left). The walls of a 3-km-wide Pleistocene crater that opens towards the sea are visible in the lower half of the image. The small, mostly snow-free central cone near the crater headwall contains a lava dome that was constructed during postglacial time and forms the highest point on the island.
