BackgroundTitila is the youngest known small Icelandic-type shield volcano in the Sredinny Range. The basaltic shield volcano overlooks the NW shore of Lake Glubokoye, west of the crest of the central Sredinny Range. Lava flows radiate from two E-W-trending summit craters of Titila, and cinder cones are prominent on its southern flank. Titila overlaps with another small shield volcano, Rassoshina, located immediately to the west. A young lava flow traveled to the north from a vent on the NE flank of Rassoshina. The latest known eruption from Titila took place about 2500 years ago.
