ASTER satellite image of a portion of Atka Island showing a fresh ash (?) deposit on the upper flank and crater rim of Korovin, November 18, 2006. Similar localized ash deposits have been seen in this sector on several occasions since 2004 (see figure 47). A small water-vapor plume is visible deep in the inner crater of Korovin (circle). Clouds obscure much of the terrain below the volcanic peaks. The partially visible crater to the lower right of Korovin is the summit of Kliuchef.
