A single unnamed Holocene cinder cone (Masurenkov, 1980) is located on the SE flank of the massive early Pleistocene Bolshaya Ipelka shield volcano, the largest volcanic structure of southern Kamchatka (Erlich 1985, pers. comm.).

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

The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Unnamed.

This massive shield volcano, extensively eroded by glaciers, is the early Pleistocene Bolshaya Ipelka shield volcano, the largest volcanic structure of southern Kamchatka. A single unnamed Holocene cinder cone is found on the southern flank of Bolshaya Ipelka. The conical stratovolcano to the east (right) is Opala, which was constructed along the northern rim of a large 12 x 14 km wide caldera, whose floor is largely snow free in this NASA Space Shuttle image.

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.
