Details for: Kurile Lake
This renowned exposure of pyroclastic-flow deposits from Kurile Lake caldera has been named Kuthiny Baty ("vertical standing boat") because of its erosionally fluted texture. The pyroclastic-flow deposit originated from the caldera-forming eruption of Kurile Lake about 8000 years ago, one of the largest Holocene eruptions in Kamchatka. The deposit is about 100-m thick at this location on the Ozernaya River, 3 km west of Kurile Lake. Photo by Oleg Volynets (Institute of Volcanology, Petropavlovsk).
