BackgroundCherny is a small Quaternary stratovolcano located immediately north of massive Alney-Chashakondzha volcano in the central Sredinny Range. An ENE-WSW-trending line of cinder cones was constructed on the western flank of Cherny, which is the southernmost of a cluster of small stratovolcanoes and shield volcanoes trending NE from Alney-Chashakondzha. 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.
