The small, 3-km-wide island of Shirinki, part of a chain of volcanoes west of the main Kuril Island arc, is located 15 km west of Fuss Peak on Paramushir Island. The truncated andesitic cone is of Holocene age and rises to a height of 761 m. The walls of the 750-m-wide breached summit crater extend to the southern coast. Two lava domes were constructed near the headwall of the breached crater. No historical eruptions are known from Shirinki, but the summit domes are very young and possibly formed in historical time (Gorshkov, 1970). The remnants of an older volcano occupy the eastern side of the island, much of which is covered by pumiceous pyroclastic-fall deposits.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Shirinki. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Shirinki page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.
|The small, 3-km-wide island of Shirinki, part of a chain of volcanoes west of the main Kuril Island arc, is located 15 km west of Fuss Peak on Paramushir Island. Shirinki volcano, also known as Antsiferova, is cut by a 750-m-wide breached summit crater, open to the south. The crater, not visible in this view from the west, contains two lava domes, one of which is very young, possibly historical in age.

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.
