Background:

The Pleistocene Barkhatnaya Sopka ring complex of andesitic-to-rhyolitic lava domes, located along the Paratunka River NW of Vilyuchik volcano, also contains Holocene basaltic pyroclastic cones. Most of the younger cones lie on the south and SE sides of the dome complex. The Barkhatnaya Sopka cinder cone formed after the middle Holocene (Ponomareva 1992, pers. comm.).
