Photo Gallery

Diky Greben, seen here from the E along the Ozernaya River, is a Holocene lava dome complex that formed in the center of the 20 x 25 km Pleistocene Pauzhetka caldera. Early activity took place around 6,000 years ago. There are thick lava flows N and S of Nepriyatnaya dome (left-center horizon), which forms the summit of the complex.

The Diky Greben lava dome complex rises above Kurile Lake caldera. Early eruptions took place about 6,000 years ago, about 2,000 years after formation of the 10-km-wide caldera. The eastern lava dome, seen here, opens to the E. Most of the edifice, including the unvegetated thick lava flow visible to the S (left) of the summit, was constructed about 2,000-1,500 years ago.
