Background:

Mezhdusopochny, a late-Quaternary Icelandic-type basaltic shield volcano, lies at the NE end of a group of small shield volcanoes occupying a NE-SW-trending graben extending west of the crest of the central Sredinny Range north of Kebeny volcano. The volcano rises above the north shore of Lake Mezhdusopochny. The floor of the graben south of Mezhdusopochny is covered by sheets of basaltic lava. 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.
