Geological Summary

Kinenin maar lies at the eastern foot of the Sredinny Range, about 80 km NNW of Shiveluch volcano. The 2.5-km-wide, funnel-shaped maar was formed along the Kinenin River, a tributary of the Elovka River. The maar is partially filled by a 1-km-wide lake whose surface is at 400 m elevation. The eastern rim at 583 m is the high point of the crater. The eruption of Kinenin maar took place about 1100 years ago, making it the youngest known maar in Kamchatka. The eruption produced both silicic pyroclastic flows and mafic pyroclastic ejecta, which was distributed primarily to the ENE. The unusual location of Kinenin maar lies north of the active subduction zone of Kamchatka.
