Plosky is a small late-Quaternary Icelandic-type shield volcano located south of the Bolshaya Kimitina River. Plosky lies SE of Ichinsky volcano near the SE margin of the Sredinny Range. The 1236-m-high summit of Plosky consists of a small basaltic stratovolcano overtopping the lava shield. Early geologic studies in the Sredinny Range (Ogorodov et al., 1972) identified numerous Holocene eruptive centers based primarily on morphological criteria. However, later work has suggested that Sredinny Range volcanoes are less mantled by Holocene tephras than eastern Kamchatka volcanoes and therefore appear more youthful, so that Holocene eruptions are uncertain for many of these Sredinny Range eruptive vents.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Plosky. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Plosky 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 Plosky.
The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Plosky.
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.
