Eruptive History

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Udina. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Udina page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

Deformation History

There is no Deformation History data available for Udina.

Emission History

Photo Gallery

The summit of flat-topped Plosky Tolbachik volcano (right) contains a 3-km-wide, glacier-filled caldera. Scoria cones line a rift zone that extends to the NE. Another rift zone that extends 70 km SSW of the summit has been the site of frequent basaltic eruptions during the Holocene, including the "Great Tolbachik Fissure Eruption" of 1975-76. Udina rises to the left, with Kronotsky on the far horizon to the SSE.

This photo looks north along the cluster of large edifices forming the Klyuchevskaya volcano group. Udina (foreground) and Zimina (middle right) are Holocene cones. Kamen (top center) and Klyuchevskoy (top right) are the far-background. Ushkovsky volcano (top left) lies at the NW end of the volcanic group. Bezymianny is hidden below clouds beside Kamen.

Zimina (left) and Udina (center) are shown here beyond a dark-colored lava flow from an active 1990 Bezymianny lava dome. Both Udina and Zimina encompass two edifices, only one of each are visible in this photo.

The Udina volcanic massif consists of two cones constructed along a WNW-ESE line at the south end of the Klyuchevskaya volcanic group, and SE of Tolbachik. The western cone is Bolshaya Udina, seen here from the south, and has a lava dome on the SW flank. The smaller Malaya Udina is out of view to the right.

The eroded W flank of Udina is seen here beyond the 2012-13 Tolbachik lava flow. The smaller Malaya Udina is on the opposite side of the cone.
