Background

Terpuk is a small Icelandic-type basaltic shield volcano located west of the crest of the Sredinny Range, south of Leutongey volcano and NW of Kebeney volcano. The 765-m-high shield volcano is topped by small cinder cones aligned NE-SW, along the trend of the Sredinny Range. Fresh-looking, sparsely vegetated lava flows radiate from the summit vents and blocked local drainages, forming several small lakes. Topography constrains the flows to be longer toward the west, away from the crest of the range. The flows are among the youngest in the Sedankinsky Dol region and were erupted about 2500-3000 years ago.
