BackgroundYavinsky is a lower- to mid-Pleistocene basaltic volcano that forms an arcuate ridge (Yavinsky Khrebet) along the SW coast of Kamchatka overlooking the town of Ozernovsky and the mouth of the Ozernaya River. A Holocene basaltic cinder cone named Ukho, related to regional basaltic monogenetic volcanism, was constructed on the NW flank of 705-m-high Yavinsky. Ukho, whose name in Russian means "Ear," was formed about 6000 years ago, based on stratigraphic evidence.
