Eruptive History

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Udina. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Udina page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

Deformation History

There is no Deformation History data available for Udina.

Emission History

Photo Gallery

The summit of flat-topped Plosky Tolbachik volcano (right) is truncated by a 3-km-wide, glacier-filled caldera. Several lines of cinder cones dot a rift zone that extends NE from the basaltic shield volcano. Another rift zone that extends 70 km SSW of the summit has been the site of frequent basaltic eruptions during the Holocene, including the "Great Tolbachik Fissure Eruption" of 1975-76. The conical peak of Udina volcano rises at the left, with massive Kronotsky volcano behind it on the far horizon.

This dramatic photo looks north along the cluster of large stratovolcanoes forming the Kliuchevskaya volcano group. Udina volcano (foreground) and the twin Zimina volcano (middle right) are Holocene centers without historical eruptions. Kamen volcano (top center) and Kliuchevskoi (top right) are Kamchatka's two highest peaks. Ushkovsky volcano (top left) lies at the NW end of the volcano group and has had a single historical eruption. Bezymianny volcano is hidden by clouds below Kamen.

Zimina (left) and Udina (center) volcanoes rise to the south beyond a dark-colored lava flow from an active 1990 lava dome at Bezymianny volcano. The larger of two stratovolcanoes forming Zimina volcano, 3081-m-high Ovalnaya Zimina, is visible in this photo; the extensively eroded Ostraya Zimina is out of view to the SE. Udina volcano also consists of two twin stratovolcanoes; the lower SE cone is hidden behind Ovalnaya Zimina. Zimina and Udina are the only major volcanoes of the Kliuchevskoi volcano group without historical eruptions.

The Udina volcanic massif consists of two conical stratovolcanoes constructed along a WNW-ESE line at the south end of the Kliuchevskaya volcanic group, SE of Tolbachik volcano. The western volcano, 2923-m-high Bolshaya Udina, seen here from the south, has a prominent lava dome on its SW flank. The 1945-m-high Malaya Udina, out of view to the right, rises above a low saddle at the eastern end of the Udina complex; small lava domes also occur on its flanks. No historical eruptions have occurred from the Udina complex.
