BackgroundKrainy is a small late-Quaternary Icelandic-type basaltic to basaltic-andesite shield volcano located NE of Anaun volcano in the southern Sredinny Range. Cinder cones dot the flanks of the 1554-m-high shield volcano. 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.
