Bezymianny Volcano, Russia

The Novy lava dome at Kamchatka's Bezymianny volcano has been growing since 1956 within a large horseshoe-shaped crater.

The 1.8 x 2.5 km crater formed during the catastrophic 1956 eruption when the summit of the volcano collapsed, producing a debris avalanche and lateral blast that swept to the east.

This 1980's view from the SW shows the outer flanks of the pre-1956 volcano in the foreground.

The lava dome has subsequently grown to the height of the crater rim.
