Details for: Raususan [Mendeleev]
Mendeleev volcano on the southern part of Kunashir Island towers above the village of Yuzhno-Kurilsk. Steam plumes rise above geothermal wells on the volcano's NW flanks, in one of several geothermal fields flanking the volcano. The volcano seen here lies within a 6-7 km wide caldera. The only unambiguous historical eruption from Mendeleev was a small phreatic explosion in 1880. Photo by Alexander Rybin, 2001 (Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics, Yuzhno-Sakhalin).
