The Kamchatka Peninsula of far eastern Russian

May 23, 2013 - The Kamchatka Peninsula of far eastern Russian was surrounded by life in late May 2013, at least the oceanic sort. Massive blooms of microscopic, plant-like organisms called phytoplankton spread green over the nearby waters of the Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia. Looking toward the North Pole from the southern end of the peninsula, blooms of chlorophyll-rich cells appear off both the west coast, in the Sea of Okhotsk, and to the east in the North Pacific Ocean.
Stretching nearly 1, 250-kilometers (780 mile) from north to south, the peninsula is dotted with volcanoes, some of which are faintly visible

Russias Kamchatka Peninsula

February 2000 - Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula, lying between the Sea of Okhotsk to the west and the Bering Sea and Pacific Ocean to the east, is one of the most active volcanic regions along the Pacific Ring of Fire. It covers an area about the size of Colorado but contains more than 100 volcanoes stretching across the 1000-kilometer-long (620-mile-long) land mass. A dozen or more of these have active vents, with the youngest located along the eastern half of the peninsula. This color-coded shaded relief image, generated with data from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM), shows Kamchatka's volcanic nature to dramatic effect.
Kliuchevskoi, one of the most active and renowned volcanoes in the world, dominates the main cluster of volcanoes called the Kliuchi group, visible as a circular feature in the center-right of the image. The two other main volcanic ranges lie along northeast-southwest lines, with the older, less active range occupying the center and western half of Kamchatka. The younger, more active belt begins at the southernmost point of the peninsula and continues upward along the Pacific coastline.
Two visualization methods were combined to produce this image: shading and color coding of topographic height. The shade image was derived by computing topographic slope in the north-south direction, so northern slopes appear bright and southern slopes appear dark. Color coding is directly related to topographic height, with green at the lower elevations, rising through yellow and brown to white at the highest elevations.

Satellite view of Russias Kamchatka Peninsula

January 11, 2013 - Satellite view of Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula. The active volcanos Shiveluch, Bezymianny, Tolbachik, and Kizimen were all erupting simultaneously in this image. The Shiveluch and Bezymianny eruptions are both characterized by a growing lava dome, thick, pasty lava that forms a mound as it is extruded. Tolbachik, one of the few shield volcanoes on Kamchatka, is erupting in a dramatically different manner. The thin, runny lava flows easily, forming low and broad flows similar to those in Hawaii. Rocks and ash frequently fall from Kizimena??s summit and the fresh lava flow on its eastern flank, creating dark, fan-shaped debris deposits
