Khodutka volcano located in South Kamchatka also was repetitively active during the Holocene and last erupted only 2000-2500 14C years BP (Melekestsev et al., 1989). It is composed of low-mid potassic basaltic andesite and andesite. Khodutka rocks overlie those of Priemysh, an old volcanic edifice located northwest of Khodutka. A prominent feature of the volcano is the presence at its foot of at least two large explosive craters, each of which produced voluminous tephra. One of the craters is of Late Pleistocene age, and the other (Khodutkinsky crater) formed only about 2500 years BP and produced marker ash KHD.
