The Bolshe-Bannaya ring complex, located north of the Bannaya River WSW of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, contains a group of Pleistocene andesitic-to-rhyolitic lava domes and late-Pleistocene to Holocene pyroclastic cones (Luchitsky, 1974). It lies within the massive 17 x 32 km wide early Pleistocene Karymshina caldera, which produced about 800 cu km of rhyolitic ignimbrite about 1.78 million years ago. Two areas of late-Pleistocene to Holocene basaltic lava flows are located SE of the ring complex, and another group of younger cones and flows occurs to the NW.

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