Far East, Primorye | Uzon volcano (Kamchatka)

     

Uzon volcano is a 9 by 12 km volcanic caldera located in the eastern part of Kamchatka Peninsula. Together with the Geyzernaya caldera it hosts the largest geothermal field in the Kamchatka Peninsula. The calderas were formed in the mid- Pleistocene in several large eruptions that deposited 20–25 km3 of iqnimbrite over a wide area. Lake Dalny fills a Holocene maar in the northeast of Uzon caldera.

The Uzon caldera is a location of the occurrence of extremophile micro-organisms due to its high localized temperatures.

Mutnovsky volcano is a complex volcano located in the southern part of Kamchatka Peninsula. It is one of the most active volcanoes of southern Kamchatka; the latest eruption was recorded in 2000. At the foot of the Mutnovsky lies a geyser field, popularly known as the Lesser Valley of Geysers.
