Active fumaroles, some issuing from a hole in the snow-and-ice cap

Aerial observations on 21 September 1993 provided a clearer overview of fumarole locations. The aerial observations took place at noon and 1700 and included photo and video records. Two main vent areas were recognized and described. One vent area lies at the S side of the upper ridge segment, and covers an approximate area of 0.05-0.2 km2. This area resembled the flanks of a dome and emitted yellow-colored steam. The other vent area lies ~2 km to the NNE of the previously described one, and exits through a 100-m-wide perforation through Yanteles snow-and-ice cap. This vent area emitted a roughly 100-m high, white-to-yellow plume. Neither this vent area nor any other site in vicinity of the ridge has the morphology of a crater.
