BackgroundKozyrevsky is a small Quaternary Icelandic-type basaltic to basaltic-andesite shield volcano located east of the Bystraya River, about 40 km east of Ichinsky volcano in the southern Sredinny Range. Kozyrevsky is topped by a small stratovolcano and has an E-W-trending chain of cinder cones that cuts across its southern 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.
