Background

The southernmost major stratovolcano on the Kamchatka peninsula, 2156-m-high Kambalny has a summit crater that is breached to the SE. There are no records of historical eruptions from Kambalny although its very youthful volcanic features suggest the possibility of very recent eruptions. Five Holocene cinder cones on the west and SE flanks have produced fresh-looking lava flows. Beginning about 6300 radiocarbon years ago, a series of major collapses of the edifice produced at least three debris-avalanche deposits. The last major eruption took place about 600 years ago, although younger tephra layers have been found, an a historical eruption was reported in 1767. Active fumarolic areas are found on the flanks of the volcano, which is located south of the massive Pauzhetka volcano-tectonic depression.
