Ozernoy is a small early Holocene basaltic shield volcano (Masurenkov, 1980) that is dwarfed by its neighbor to the SE, massive Ksudach volcano. The 562-m-high Ozernoy has a volume of only 2 cu km and rises 300 m above the floor of a valley in the center of the southern Kamchatka Peninsula.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Ozernoy. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Ozernoy 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, low-angle, snow-free volcano with a circular outline above and to the right of the center of this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the right) is Ozernoy volcano. This early Holocene basaltic shield volcano is dwarfed by its neighbor to the SE, massive Ksudach caldera (lower left). The 562-m-high Ozernoy has a volume of only 2 cu km and rises 300 m above the floor of a valley in the center of the southern Kamchatka Peninsula.

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.
