Milne volcano, the southernmost on Simushir Island in the central Kuriles, lies immediately SE of the somma of Goriaschaia volcano. The outer flanks of the steep-sided 1540-m-high volcano are dissected by deep gullies. A 3-km-wide caldera breached widely to the south was formed during the Pleistocene and became a center of glaciation. A small central cone capped by an andesitic lava dome was constructed within the caldera during postglacial time and forms the highest point on Simushir Island. Lava flows from the central cone descend 4-5 km to the sea.
