Krasheninnikov volcano


Krasheninnikov volcano looking northeast from the northern rim of the Uzon caldera. On this photo Krasheninnikov looks dull and non-attractive: just a ridge of two coalesced cones with gentle topography. A rim of the 35-38-ka-old Late Pleistocene Krasheninnikov caldera, enclosing the volcano, is at the left. Dissected topography in the mid-ground is formed by welded tuff from the 40-ka-old Uzon caldera overlapped by slightly younger ignimbrite from Krasheninnikov caldera. Kronotsky volcano is at the background.
