The Uzon Caldera is a unique area manifestation of modern volcanism. The Caldera of Uzon volcano is on the Kamchatka Peninsula on the territory of the Kronotsky reserve, South of Kronotsky lake. This is the place that shaped a unique symbiosis of wild nature and volcanism.
The Uzon Caldera was formed about 40 thousand years ago on the site of a huge volcano destroyed near a powerful explosive eruptions. Caldera is a massive bowl-shaped depression about 150 sq km, surrounded by steep ledges, the height of which ranges from 200 to 850 m.
The hydrothermal system of the Caldera of volcano Uzon is one of the most powerful on the Kamchatka Peninsula. On the territory of the width of 200-350 m and is located more than a thousand thermal springs in various sizes and shapes, a large number of thermal lakes, the outputs of the gas-steam jets, mud volcanoes and mud pots. There are also outputs of Seltzer.
The Uzon Caldera is a unique place where there are a variety of existence of young volcanism of different composition, the products of glaciation, as well as connection with sulfatar fields with native sulphur deposits and accumulations of hydrothermal altered rocks of all colors.
Environmental public organization «Ukrainian society for the protection of birds” 29 – 30 November conduct final conference. The event takes place in the framework of the campaign “I love my coast”.

In the centre of Eurasia there is the most large and unique lake in the world, the Baikal, with bird’s-eye resembles a Crescent moon with transparent blue water. The length of the lake is 636 km and width — 80 km Into the lake more than 300 rivers and streams, and flows of lake Baikal with only one river – the Angara. Baikal is the deepest lake in the world: its maximum depth is 1637 m and average is 730 m. the Total number of Islands in Baikal – 30, the largest is Olkhon island: 71 km long and 12 km wide. Still open question about the age of the lake. Many scientists believe that the lake is over 20-30 million years. However, the exact answer nobody can articulate.
Surprise lake Baikal with its unusually clean, oxygenated water. Water in the lake contains a small amount of dissolved minerals, organic impurities, but oxygen-rich. The water is cold, even in summer the temperature does not exceed +10. Water clarity is surprising: at a depth of 40 m can be clearly seen individual stones.
To imagine the scope of the lake, is to say that the volume of water in lake Baikal is 20% of all world reserves of fresh water. In the period from January to may inclusive the surface of the lake is covered by ice. The lake freezes, usually in its entirety. The thickness of the ice in the winter can be on average Continue reading
