Karymsky is in the north and the Akademia Nauk caldera containing Karymsky Lake is in the south of this August 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 19 km across). Along the northern rim of the lake is the 1996 eruption vent, and south of the lake is the Polovinka caldera rim. The current Karymsky cone has formed within the older Karymsky caldera, and adjacent to the northern rim is the Dvor caldera. Satellite image courtesy of Planet Labs, 2019.
