Details for: Chirippusan [Chirip]
The Chirip Peninsula, jutting NW-ward into the Sea of Okhotsk from central Iturup Island, is constructed of twin overlapping Holocene stratovolcanoes. Bogdan Khmelnitskii volcano (center) lies at the southern end of the peninsula, and Chirip volcano (in the background left of Bogdan Khmelnitskii) forms the northern end. Lava flows from Bogdan Khmelnitskii (also known as Minami-Chirippu or South Chirippu) reach the coast on both the east and west sides of the peninsula.
