Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Karpinsky Group
The Karpinsky group, seen here from the south, consists of three Holocene volcanic centers at the southern end of the Karpinsky Ridge in the southern part of Paramushir Island. The 1345-m-high southern cone forms the high point of the Karpinsky massif and fed lava flows to the SE and west. The NW cone displays hot springs and sulfur cones containing boiling liquid sulfur that is occasionally sprayed outward. A minor ash ejection following an earthquake in 1952 marked the only historical eruption of the Karpinsky group. Photo by Yoshihiro Ishizuka, 2000 (Hokkaido University).
