The small isolated cone of Rudakov occupies the Tokotan Isthmus on the Sea of Okhotsk coast of central Urup Island. The 542-m-high basaltic-andesite stratovolcano lies between Petr Shmidt ridge and Krishtofovich Ridge and is capped by a 700-m-wide, funnel-like crater containing a 300-m-wide lake. The age of Rudakov was considered to be late Pleistocene or early Holocene (Gorshkov, 1970).
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Rudakov. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Rudakov page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Rudakov.
|The small isolated cone on the Tokotan Isthmus adjacent to the Sea of Okhotsk (left) near the center of this Landsat image is Rudakov volcano. The 542-m-high basaltic-andesite stratovolcano lies between Petr Shmidt ridge (upper right) and Krishtofovich Ridge (lower left) in central Urup Island and is capped by a 700-m-wide, funnel-like crater containing a 300-m-wide lake visible in this image.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
