BackgroundFedotych, a small late-Quaternary Icelandic-type basaltic to basaltic-andesite shield volcano, lies about 20 km east of the crest of the central Sredinny Range ENE of Kebeney volcano. Minor fissure-fed lava flows are located WNW of 965-m-high Fedotych, one of the lowest Quaternary volcanoes of the Sredinny Range. 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.
