Introduction

Shishel is a prominent glacier-capped, 2525-m-high late-Quaternary Icelandic-type basaltic to shield volcano located at the crest of the central Sredinny Range. Shishel rises to the east of a broad graben containing a NE-SW-trending chain of lower overlapping small shield volcanoes ranging from Leutongey on the SW to Mezhdusopochny on the NE. Small cinder cones are located south and SW of Shishel, and a major lava field is located on its NE flank. 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.
