Background:

A cluster of overlapping small Icelandic-type basaltic shield volcanoes is located east of the crest of the Sredinny Range, NE of Shishel volcano and SE of Alngey volcano. The largest edifice is the 1381-m-high Elovsky shield volcano. The smaller 1021-m-high Ozernoy shield volcano lies immediately to the SE of Elovsky. The massive early Holocene Ozernovsky lava flow, located immediately NE of Elovsky, traveled to the ESE down a glacially dissected valley on the flanks of the Sredinny Range. The flow is postglacial in age, but older than roughly 7000-year-old tephra layers from Khangar volcano. The massive flow dammed tributary valleys, creating several lakes near the headwaters of the Levaya and Pravaya Ozeraya rivers and forming a lava field covering an area of 100 sq km.
