Photo Gallery

The Kinenin maar lies at the eastern foot of the Sredinny Range, about 80 km NW of Sheveluch seen in the background. The eruption took place about 1,100 years ago, and the maar is now partially filled by a 1-km-wide lake whose surface is at 400 m elevation.

Kinenin maar is seen in this near-vertical aerial photo, with the lake reaching 1 km in diameter. The maar was named after the Kinenin River seen to the south, and was formed during an explosive eruption about 1,100 years ago. The NE crater wall is significantly higher and coincides with the dominant direction of the tephra dispersal.
