Details for: Chikurachki
The NW slopes of Chikurachki, the highest volcano on Paramushir Island, rise above the Sea of Okhotsk. Oxidized scoria covering the upper part of the cone give it a distinctive red color. The Tatarinov group of six volcanic centers is located immediately to the south of Chikurachki, forming the ridge on the right horizon. In contrast to the frequently active Chikurachki, the Tatarinov volcanoes are extensively modified by erosion and have a more complex structure.
