Background:

Khodutka stratovolcano was formed during the late-Pleistocene to early Holocene SE of an older stratovolcano, Priemysh. At least 10 explosion craters, small lava cones, and lava domes are located along the flanks, and Holocene cinder cones produced by regional basaltic volcanism occur to the west. The Khodutkinsky maar on the WNW flank was created about 2800 years ago during an eruption that deposited tephra across much of southern Kamchatka. Formation of the twin maar was accompanied by small pyroclastic flows and followed by the emplacement of lava flows and domes. The last dated eruption took place from the summit vent of Khodutka about 2000-2500 years ago. The Khodutka Springs geothermal field occupies an explosion crater on the NW flank of Priemysh volcano.
