Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-11774

Two closely spaced vents visible near the center of this photo produced the Bliznetsy ("Twins") lava flows. Prominent compressional ridges are visible on the flows, which were dated at about 3,000 years ago. Emplacement of the lava field was preceded by weak phreatomagmatic eruptions.
