The Lake Dalny maar formed about 7,600-7,700 years ago in the the northern area of Uzon caldera. Tephra deposits from this eruption are found within 5 km from the lake. The 1-km-wide maar is surrounded by a 60-m-high tephra ring that forms the flat slope on the far side of the lake. The northern wall of Uzon caldera rises behind it.
