BackgroundRomanovka is a small late-Quaternary stratovolcano located immediately north of the Kozyrevka River in the southern Sredinny Range. A broad area of youthful cinder cones and associated lava flows is located on both sides of the river and extends primarily to the east of 1442-m-high Romanovka, reaching the SE margin of the Sredinny Range. 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.
