Three small overlapping late-Quaternary Icelandic-type basaltic to basaltic-andesite shield volcanoes are located NE of Leutongey volcano, west of the crest of the central Sredinny Range. Tuzovsky, the SW-most volcano, is the highest, rising to 1533 m; 1450-m-high Tvitunup is the northernmost, and 1410-m-high Sredny is located to the NE of Tuzovsky. Early geologic studies in the Sredinny Range (Ogorodov et al., 1972) identified numerous Holocene eruptive centers based primarily on morphological criteria. However, later work has suggested that Sredinny Range volcanoes are less mantled by Holocene tephras than eastern Kamchatka volcanoes and therefore appear more youthful, so that Holocene eruptions are uncertain for many of these Sredinny Range eruptive vents.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Tuzovsky. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Tuzovsky 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|
|Sredny||Shield volcano||1410 m||57° 20' 0" N||160° 2' 0" E|
|Tvitunup||Shield volcano||1450 m||57° 21' 0" N||159° 58' 0" E|
|The largest volcano at the right-center portion of this NASA Space Shuttle Mission image is Tuzovsky. This small late-Quaternary Icelandic-type basaltic to basaltic-andesite shield volcano lies SE of the eroded Pleistocene Shlen volcano (upper left). Tuzovsky, rising to 1533 m, is flanked by the two smaller cones of 1450-m-high Tvitunup to the north and 1410-m-high Sredny to the NE.

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.
