Mashkovtsev, the southernmost Holocene volcano of Kamchatka (Masurenkov 1980), forms a small peninsula on the Sea of Okhotsk near the southern tip of Kamchatka. The small 503-m-high basaltic stratovolcano has a postglacial summit cone (Sviatlovsky 1959). Two Holocene basaltic cones are located to the north. The age assignments of southern Kamchatkan volcanoes primarily reflect the work of Kozhemyaka, Ogorodov, and Litasov. In cases where radiometric ages are lacking, age assignments are based primarily on a geologic or sometimes strictly morphologic basis. The complex volcanic history of this region reflects several cycles of volcanism, with frequent overprinting of young basaltic cinder cones and small stratovolcanoes on eroded Pleistocene volcanoes. In general, when several Holocene cones are superimposed on an older edifice, the volcano is classified as Holocene; a single flank Holocene cone is listed separately and the older volcano is classified as Pleistocene.

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

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

The small peninsula extending into the Sea of Okhotsk just above the center of the image is Mashkovtsev, the southernmost young volcano of Kamchatka. Cape Lopatka, the southern tip of Kamchatka, lies at the end of the narrow SW-pointing peninsula at the lower right in this Space Shuttle image with the Pacific Ocean at the bottom. Mashkovstev is a small 503-m-high basaltic stratovolcano that has a postglacial summit cone. Two small basaltic cones are located to the north.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
