Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

Eruptive History

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Recheschnoi. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Recheschnoi 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 data available for 3 deformation periods. Expand each entry for additional details.


Deformation during 2003 - 2010 [Uplift; Observed by InSAR]

Start Date: 2003 Stop Date: 2010 Direction: Uplift Method: InSAR
Magnitude: Unknown Spatial Extent: Unknown Latitude: Unknown Longitude: Unknown

Remarks: Uplift near Geyser Bight and Hot Springs Cove due to magma intrusion and/or hydorthermal pressurization.

Averaged deformation images of Mount Vsevidof and Mount Recheshnoi and surrounding area produced by stacking Envisat InSAR images acquired during 2003?2010 along descending tracks 344 and 115. A full cycle of colors (i.e., one interferometric fringe) represents 10 mm/year of surface displacement along the LOS

Deformation during 2003 - 2010 [Subsidence; Observed by InSAR]

Start Date: 2003 Stop Date: 2010 Direction: Subsidence Method: InSAR
Magnitude: Unknown Spatial Extent: Unknown Latitude: Unknown Longitude: Unknown

Remarks: Localized subsidence superimposed on a broad inflation signal, centered SE of Geyser Bight. Probably due to depressurization or degassing of the hydrothermal system.
