Iturup Island, belonging to the southern Kuril Islands, but disputed by Russia and Japan, runs diagonally across this  orthorectified image between the Sea of Okhotsk (left) and the North Atlantic Ocean (right). A chain of volcanic massifs stretches northeast to southwest along the length of the island.

Here, from bottom to top,  are the Berutarube stratovocano (at the tip of the island), the submerged caldera rim of the Lvinaya Past volcano, the Atsonupuri stratovolcano (west coast), the Bogatyr Ridge stratovolcano (center), the Grozny Group complex volcano (just northeast of the bay on the east coast), and the Baransky stratovolcano (near the east coast, just northeast of the previous).
