Geological Summary

Kell volcano is a small Holocene stratovolcano constructed within the Pizrak caldera, immediately north of Zheltovsky volcano (Masurenkov, 1980). This remote volcanic complex consists of three partially nested 3-5 km wide calderas containing lava domes and several small stratovolcanoes, the largest of which is 900-m-high Kell volcano.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Kell. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Kell 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.
