Image Caption: The Kuril island chain is a line of volcanoes connecting northern Japan (Hokkaido)
with the Kamchatkan peninsula, and separating the Pacific plate from the Eurasian plate.
Onekotan (35 mi. long) is one of the northernmost of the Kurils, seen here under a
dusting of snow, with the large southern caldera at the big end of the island clearly
visible. The caldera contains a lake, seen here largely ice-free, with a new central
volcanic dome projecting through the lake. The small island immediately south is
Kharimkotan I.
