MODIS Land Rapid Response Team,

A clear day on April 9, 2010 gave the MODIS on the Terra satellite this view of this snowy Kamchatka Peninsula in Eastern Russia. To the west of the peninsula is the Sea of Okhotskoy - the Bering Sea is to the east.

Kamchatka is mountainous and volcanically active. The Sredinnyy Khrebet Mountains, which has numerous volcanoes, run down the peninsula's center. Some of these volcanoes are visible to the east of the mountain range. The highest of them, Klyuchevskaya Sopka, is 15,584 feet tall. The Shiveluch Volcano, the northernmost volcano in this grouping (near the center of the image), is one of the most active volcanoes on Kamchatka.
