Pogranychny is the highest and easternmost of a group of three small late-Quaternary Icelandic-type basaltic to basaltic-andesite shield volcanoes located NE of Cherny volcano in the central Sredinny Range. Centralny volcano is at the SW end of the group, and Vodorazdelny is at the north. A NNE-SSW-trending chain of cinder cones extends across Vodorazdelny to Centralny. 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 Pogranychny. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Pogranychny page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
