Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-12468
The Vernadskii Ridge in northern Paramushir Island is in the center of this September 2017 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 22 km across). The ridge has three main volcano groups including the Vernadskii volcano group in the southern end, and the Bogdanovich volcano group 4-5 km north of that. A 3.5-km-long lava flow with levees and compression ridges was emplaced to the N then turned towards the E.
