Background:

Cinder cones along the Levaya Avacha River about 60 km north of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy erupted lavas over young river terraces. The basaltic Veer cone, located on the west side of the Levaya Avacha (Left Avacha River, produced a fresh-looking lava flow with prominent flow ridges that descended into the river valley. Although Krijanovsky (1934) listed an 1856 eruption, stratigraphic studies have shown that the eruption of Veer occurred sometime between the 1500 years before present (BP) eruption from Barany Amphitheater of Opala volcano and a 1630 yr BP eruption from Avachinsky volcano (Dirksen 1999, pers. comm.). Nearby andesitic Pravy volcano is also of postglacial age.
