Background:

Vilyuchik, also known as Viliuchinsky or Uilyuchinsky, is a steep-sided Pleistocene-to-Holocene stratovolcano that forms a prominent landmark south of Avachinsky Bay. Deep erosional gullies dissect the flanks of the 2173-m-high volcano. Lava domes and young basaltic cinder cones were constructed at its base. Most of the growth of the volcano took place during the late Pleistocene. The last significant eruption took place from the summit crater about 10,000 years ago, producing a moderate airfall deposit and a lava flow. Landslides and rock avalanches from the steep-sided volcano have affected habited areas.
