Supplemental Information

The decimal degree locations and the names of the volcanoes in this dataset were taken from the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT) website, accessed March 15, 2010. This list of "volcanoes" includes volcanic centers, groupings of several related volcanoes, as well as individual vents. Names given here are taken directly from the English-language catalog of active volcanoes of Kamchatka and the Northern Kurile Islands on the KVERT website, and information on the Kurile Island volcanoes provided by Marina Chibisova, Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics, Yuzhno-Sakhalin (personal communication, 2010). English-language names were reviewed by Olga Girina (KVERT) and Marina Chivisova (SVERT) and corrected for current preferences. The publication consists of a map and a spreadsheet which contains location information.
