Background:

Gorny Institute volcano lies at the NE end of chain of small late-Quaternary volcanoes extending NE from Kebeney volcano in the central Sredinny Range. Gorny Institute volcano was constructed near the steep-walled eastern margin of a major NE-SW-trending graben extending NE from Kebeney volcano. A line of cinder cones with the same orientation is located on the NE and SW flanks of Gorny Institute. Gorny Institute is one of the few large stratovolcanoes in the Sredinny Range that has been active throughout the Holocene. More than 20 pyroclastic horizons have been documented, and the last major eruption took place about 700 years ago.
