Schmidt volcano is a large 2020-m-high mid- to upper-Pleistocene shield-like volcano located north of Kronotsky volcano and SW of Gamchen volcano (Lutchitsky, 1974). A dike complex is prominent on the eroded volcano, which was constructed along a NE-trending fault zone. Following the cessation of activity at Schmidt volcano during the Pleistocene, regional basaltic volcanism produced some monogenetic cinder cones that were erupted through the eastern and NE flanks of the volcano during the Holocene (Andreev et al., 1988).
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Schmidt. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Schmidt 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 Schmidt.
|The extensively eroded edifice in this center of this Space Shuttle image with north to the upper right is Schmidt volcano. This large glacially eroded shield-like volcano is of mid- to upper-Pleistocene age. Following the Pleistocene cessation of activity at Schmidt volcano, regional basaltic volcanism produced some Holocene monogenetic cinder cones that were erupted through the eastern and NE flanks of the volcano. Schmidt is flanked by the conical Kronotsky stratovolcano at the lower left and the Gamchen complex at the far right.

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.
