Dzenzursky is a strongly eroded stratovolcano of Pleistocene age that lies along a ridge extending NW from Zhupanovsky volcano. After a long quiescence, eruptions resumed during the Holocene. A series of cinder and lava cones along a ridge trending east and SE of the volcano produced extensive fresh-looking lava fields with flows that traveled primarily to the NE. Two historical eruptions have been reported (Vlodavetz and Piip 1959, Firstov et al. 1979), however Fedotov and Masurenkov (1991) did not list historical eruptions, and Ponomareva (1992, pers. comm.) stated that these reports actually consisted of hydrothermal or fumarolic activity.

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.

Dzenzursky is a strongly eroded stratovolcano of Pleistocene age that lies along a ridge extending NW from Zhupanovsky volcano. The broad snow-capped Dzenzursky massif is seen here from the NE with the rim of the summit crater of Karymsky volcano in the foreground and conical Koryaksky volcano in the left distance. A series of cinder and lava cones along a ridge trending east and SE of Dzenzursky produced extensive fresh-looking lava fields. Two historical eruptions of uncertain validity have been reported.
