The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Zimina. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Zimina 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.
|Feature Name||Feature Type||Elevation||Latitude||Longitude|
|Ovalnaya Zimina||Stratovolcano||3018 m||55° 51' 0" N||160° 37' 0" E|
|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 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, seen here from Bezymianny volcano to the north, is topped by a large icecap and contains two summits. The extensively eroded Ostraya Zimina, off the photo to the left, has a sharp-peaked summit spire. No historical eruptions have occurred from the Zimina volcanoes.

A listing of samples from the Smithsonian collections will be available soon.
|Large Eruptions of Zimina||Information about large Quaternary eruptions (VEI >= 4) is cataloged in the Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions (LaMEVE) database of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).|
|WOVOdat||WOVOdat is a database of volcanic unrest; instrumentally and visually recorded changes in seismicity, ground deformation, gas emission, and other parameters from their normal baselines. It is sponsored by the World Organization of Volcano Observatories (WOVO) and presently hosted at the Earth Observatory of Singapore.|
|EarthChem||EarthChem develops and maintains databases, software, and services that support the preservation, discovery, access and analysis of geochemical data, and facilitate their integration with the broad array of other available earth science parameters. EarthChem is operated by a joint team of disciplinary scientists, data scientists, data managers and information technology developers who are part of the NSF-funded data facility Integrated Earth Data Applications (IEDA). IEDA is a collaborative effort of EarthChem and the Marine Geoscience Data System (MGDS).|
|MODVOLC - HIGP MODIS Thermal Alert System||Using infrared satellite Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data, scientists at the Hawai'i Institute of Geophysics and Planetology, University of Hawai'i, developed an automated system called MODVOLC to map thermal hot-spots in near real time. For each MODIS image, the algorithm automatically scans each 1 km pixel within it to check for high-temperature hot-spots. When one is found the date, time, location, and intensity are recorded. MODIS looks at every square km of the Earth every 48 hours, once during the day and once during the night, and the presence of two MODIS sensors in space allows at least four hot-spot observations every two days. Each day updated global maps are compiled to display the locations of all hot spots detected in the previous 24 hours. There is a drop-down list with volcano names which allow users to 'zoom-in' and examine the distribution of hot-spots at a variety of spatial scales.|
|MIROVA||Middle InfraRed Observation of Volcanic Activity (MIROVA) is a near real time volcanic hot-spot detection system based on the analysis of MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) data. In particular, MIROVA uses the Middle InfraRed Radiation (MIR), measured over target volcanoes, in order to detect, locate and measure the heat radiation sourced from volcanic activity.|
