BackgroundA group of basaltic cinder cones is located north of Kharchinsky volcano in the lowlands SW of Shiveluch volcano. The cinder cones and lava flows cover a broad area north of Kharchinsky and form a peninsula extending into Lake Kharchinsky. The cones are part of the arcuate Kharchinsky regional zone of more than 100 cinder cones, lava cones, tuyas, and explosion craters that extends across both Kharchinsky and Zarechny volcanoes and were formed during a later volcanic cycle unrelated to Kharchinsky (Erlich 1985, pers. comm.). The cinder cones initially were considered to be of late-Pleistocene to Holocene age (Luchitsky, 1974), but later tephrochronological studies have shown them to be of latest Pleistocene age (Volynets et al., 1999).
