Background:

Zavaritsky volcano consists of a complex of six NW-SE-trending cinder cones and an explosion crater located near the headwaters of the Levaya Avacha River west of the Eastern volcanic zone of Kamchatka. The highest cone, 1567-m-high Mount Peschanaya, lies near the southern end of the cone group. The six cones of Zavaritsky were formed during an eruption about 2800 years ago during which associated lava flows blocked the Levaya Avacha and Ozernaya rivers, forming Lake Vulkanischeskoe along the Ozernaya drainage. Other monogenetic cinder cones are located NW and NE of Zavaritsky volcano. Berezovy cinder cone to the NW erupted about 11,000 to 10,000 radiocarbon years ago. An unnamed cone near the crest of a range dividing the Srednaya Avacha and Kavicha river drainages about 14 km WNW of Zavaritsky volcano erupted about 3000-2500 years ago. The cone is slightly closer to Bakening volcano, but the chemistry of its products are related to those of Zavaritsky.
