Background:

Taunshits volcano, located west of the massive Uzon caldera, is an andesitic stratovolcano that was constructed beginning about 39,000 years Before Present (BP) on top of a large Pleistocene tuya pedestal. The 2353-m-high summit of Taunshits is truncated by a horseshoe-shaped crater breached to the west that formed about 8000 years BP during an eruption producing a directed blast and a 3 cu km debris avalanche that traveled 19 km to the west. Another strong explosive eruption took place about 2500 years BP. Two satellitic cones occupy the southern flank, and a cluster of Holocene cinder cones farther to the south may also be related to Taunshits.
