Background:

Glacier-covered Snegovoy is a 2169-m-high late-Quaternary Icelandic-type shield volcano topped by a small basaltic stratovolcano. It was constructed about 10 km ENE of Ostry volcano, east of the crest of the Sredinny Range at the NE end of a major graben along the axis of the volcanic chain. 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.
