Background:

Sedankinsky, a small Icelandic-type basaltic shield volcano, is the SE-most of a cluster of overlapping small shields along the crest of the central Sredinny Range north of Kebeney volcano. Sedankinsky lies at the SE end of a major graben extending NE from Kebeney volcano. Chains of cinder cones trending NE-SW were constructed on the southern and eastern flanks of Sedankinsky; lava flows from the latter cones bank up against the steep-walled eastern margin of the graben. Eruptions at Sedankinsky Dol, also known as Sedanka Dol, took place about 8000-10,000 years ago.
