Name: Trezubets
GVP Number: 290120
Synonims: Trezubetz, Dzigoku, Jigoku Yama, Zigoku
Region: Kuril Islands
Volcanic Area: Southern Kuriles
Coordinates: 46°3'19" N 150°5'48" E
Absolute Elevation: 1220 m
Status: Active
Aviation Color Code: GREEN
Location: The volcano is located in the middle part of Urup Island
Type: Stratovolcano
Composition: two-pyroxene andesites
Last known eruption: 1924/3/13
In the amphitheater of a partially preserved caldera with a diameter of about 2 km, a steep extrusive dome with an explosive crater with a diameter of about 300 m and a depth of 100 m at the top rises to 1017 m above sea level (about 400 m above the bottom of the caldera). The crater crest is very uneven; the southeastern part of it is severely destroyed. On the edge of the ridge there are three characteristic large teeth, on which the volcano was named. The slopes of the agglomerate mantle of the dome are quite flat. On the eastern slope, at an altitude of 700-800 m, there is an explosive crater measuring 150 x 250 m and a depth of 50 m. It is assumed that it was formed after 1915 (Nemoto, 1937). The lavas of the Trezubets volcano belong to two-pyroxene andesite [Горшков, 1967].

Potencial Hazard
Ash clouds, ash falls, pyroclastic flows, hot avalanches and lahars are a potential hazard associated with explosive eruptions of this volcano. The volcano poses a potential hazard to international and local airlines passing in the Kuriles region, since the height of its ash emissions can reach 10-15 km above sea level, ash plumes and clouds can drift hundreds of kilometers from the volcano in different directions. In addition, the outflow of lava flows onto the slopes of the volcano and the surrounding area is possibly.
