There are no Holocene eruptions known for Zimina. If this volcano has had large eruptions prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

The following references are the sources used for data regarding this volcano. References are linked directly to our volcano data file. 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. Additional discussion of data sources can be found under Volcano Data Criteria.

The eroded twin stratovolcanoes of Ostraya and Ovalnaya Zimina form a NW-SE-trending ridge north of the Udina complex at the SE end of the Kliuchevskaya volcano group. The larger 3081-m-high Ovalnaya Zimina, at the NW end of the complex, is capped by a large icecap and contains two summits. The extensively eroded Ostraya Zimina to the SE has a sharp-peaked summit spire. A large debris avalanche from Ovalnaya Zimina traveled more than 10 km. No historical eruptions have occurred from the Zimina volcanoes.
