BackgroundBliznets is a late-Pleistocene basaltic stratovolcano located on the crest of the central Sredinny Range SW of Kebeney volcano. Youthful cinder cones were constructed on the east flank of 1244-m-high Bliznets, and a group of young cones and associated lava flows blanket the northern side of the volcano. Early geologic studies in the Sredinny Range (Ogorodov et al., 1972) identified numerous Holocene eruptive centers based primarily on morphological criteria. However, later work has suggested that Sredinny Range volcanoes are less mantled by Holocene tephras than eastern Kamchatka volcanoes and therefore appear more youthful, so that Holocene eruptions are uncertain for many of these Sredinny Range eruptive vents.
