Large-volume silicic volcanism in Kamchatka: Ar–Ar and U–Pb ages, isotopic, and geochemical characteristics of major pre-Holocene caldera-forming eruptions // Journal of Volcanology and Geothermal Research. 2010. Vol. 189. № 1-2. P. 57-80. doi:10.1016/j.jvolgeores.2009.10.009.
The Kamchatka Peninsula in far eastern Russia represents the most volcanically active arc in the world in terms of magma production and the number of explosive eruptions. We investigate large-scale silicic volcanism in the past several million years and present new geochronologic results from major ignimbrite sheets exposed in Kamchatka. These ignimbrites are found in the vicinity of morphologically-preserved rims of partially eroded source calderas with diameters from ∼ 2 to ∼ 30 km and with estimated volumes of eruptions ranging from 10 to several hundred cubic kilometers of magma. We also identify and date two of the largest ignimbrites: Golygin Ignimbrite in southern Kamchatka (0.45 Ma), and Karymshina River Ignimbrites (1.78 Ma) in south-central Kamchatka. We present whole-rock geochemical analyses that can be used to correlate ignimbrites laterally. These large-volume ignimbrites sample a significant proportion of remelted Kamchatkan crust as constrained by the oxygen isotopes. Oxygen isotope analyses of minerals and matrix span a 3‰ range with a significant proportion of moderately low-δ18O values. This suggests that the source for these ignimbrites involved a hydrothermally-altered shallow crust, while participation of the Cretaceous siliceous basement is also evidenced by moderately elevated δ18O and Sr isotopes and xenocryst contamination in two volcanoes. The majority of dates obtained for caldera-forming eruptions coincide with glacial stages in accordance with the sediment record in the NW Pacific, suggesting an increase in explosive volcanic activity since the onset of the last glaciation 2.6 Ma. Rapid changes in ice volume during glacial times and the resulting fluctuation of glacial loading/unloading could have caused volatile saturation in shallow magma chambers and, in combination with availability of low-δ18O glacial meltwaters, increased the proportion of explosive vs effusive eruptions. The presented results provide new constraints on Pliocene–Pleistocene volcanic activity in Kamchatka, and thus constrain an important component of the Pacific Ring of Fire.

Ponomareva Vera A chronology of the Holocene eruptions from the northern Kamchatka volcanoes based on linking major C14-dated tephra sequences with the help of EMPA glass data // Quaternary International. 2012. Vol. 279–28. P. 383 doi: 10.1016/j.quaint.2012.08.1191.
Volcanic eruptions from Kamchatka have deposited many unique tephra layers over a large region within the North Pacific, providing important isochrons between key sites such as marine ODP core 883 (Pacific Ocean, Detroit Seamount) and Elgygytgyn Lake (Chukotka, eastern Siberia). Here we present a compilation of C14 dates on major Holocene tephras from the volcanically highly active region, based on decades of detailed stratigraphical fieldwork on Shiveluch, Kliuchevskoy, and other volcanoes.The 12-m thick tephra sequence at the Kliuchevskoy slope has been continuously accumulating during the last ∼11 ka. It contains over 200 visible individual tephra layers and no datable organic material. The section is dominated by dark-gray mafic cinders related to Kliuchevskoy activity. In addition, it contains 30 light-colored thin layers of silicic tephra from distant volcanoes including 11 layers from Shiveluch volcano located only 65 km to the north. We have used EMPA glass analysis to correlate most of the marker tephra layers to their source eruptions dated earlier by C14 (Braitseva et al., 1997; Ponomareva et al., 2007), and in this way linked Kliuchevskoy tephra sequence to sequences at other volcanoes including Shiveluch. The C14 dates and tephras from the northern Kamchatka are then combined into a single Bayesian framework taking into account stratigraphical ordering within and between the sites. This approach has allowed us to enhance the reliability and precision of the estimated ages for the eruptions. Age-depth models are constructed to analyse changes in deposition rates and volcanic activity throughout the Holocene. This detailed chronology of the eruptions serves as a basis for understanding temporal patterns in the eruption sequence and geochemical variations of magmas. This research could prove important for the long-term forecast of eruptions and volcanic hazards.

This impressive scientific resource presents up-to-date information on ten thousand years of volcanic activity on Earth. In the decade and a half since the previous edition was published new studies have refined assessments of the ages of many volcanoes, and several thousand new eruptions have been documented. This edition updates the book's key components: a directory of volcanoes active during the Holocene; a chronology of eruptions over the past ten thousand years; a gazetteer of volcano names, synonyms, and subsidiary features; an extensive list of references; and an introduction placing these data in context. This edition also includes new photographs, data on the most common rock types forming each volcano, information on population densities near volcanoes, and other features, making it the most comprehensive source available on Earth's dynamic volcanism.

Анализ геохимических характеристик миоцен-четвертичных вулканитов Срединного хребта Камчатки позволил выделить в его пределах несколько различных провинций: северную и южную части хребта, а внутри последней дополнительно «восточную», «западную» и «центральную» ветви. Приведены новые данные по составу неоген-четвертичных вулканических пород южной части Срединного хребта Камчатки: вулканическим массивам Хангар, Ичинский, горы Юртиная в «западной» ветви хребта, вулканическим проявлениям Быстринского и Козыревского хребта в «восточной» ветви, а также Анаунскому долу и массиву Уксичан. Показано, что наблюдаются систематические отличия в составах пород «западной» и «восточной» ветвей. В пределах «восточной» ветви в неогене проявлен вулканизм островодужного типа. В четвертичное время в геохимических характеристиках вулканитов этого района сочетаются признаки островодужного и внутриплитного происхождения. Такой геохимический тип авторы предлагают называть гибридным. В пределах «западной» ветви вулканизм гибридного типа проявляется начиная с неогена, а типично островодужные вулканиты не обнаружены. Процессы магмогенерации в «западной» ветви Cрединного хребта в значительной степени подвержены влиянию мантийного источника обогащенного типа; участие флюида здесь ощущается в меньшей степени, чем в породах «восточной» ветви, где явно прослеживается субдукционный компонент источника.

Isotope-geochemical material for Pliocene-Quaternary volcanoes of the Kamchatka region is generalized on a cartographic basis. The Sr-isotope anomalies of moderate and elevated radiogenicity, geochemically confirmed, are spatially conjugated. This made it possible to interpret these anomalies not only as a reflection of mantle plume material in the composition of volcanic rocks, but also of its hybrid environment, as a consequence of plum-lithosphere remobilization. The presence of multi-directional geochemical trends made it possible to propose the concept of moving boundary values for the composition of indicator rocks of the intraplate type and adakites, which significantly expanded the possibilities of their diagnostics. The isotope-geochemical heterogeneity of basaltoids of the region is generally determined by the peculiarities of concentration of rocks with intraplate and adakite geochemical characteristics, which allows considering the asthenospheric diapirism as the main factor of petrogenesis of Pliocene-Quaternary volcanism in Kamchatka.

The paper presents new geological and isotope-geochemical data on rock composition from the head of the Kikhchik River, the outer NW part of Miocene-Pliocene volcanic belt of Central Kamchatka. The authors obtained age characteristics (40K−40Ar dates): 9.8 and 9.1 Ma for Kecheva massif and 8.3 and 7.8 Ma for Aopchi cones. New data on ages and analytical materials allow substantial updating our understanding of the rock composition from this volcanic belt as well as the beginning of volcanic activity. The authors revealed complex rocks, both completely identical to closely located volcanic manifestations (Kecheva) and abnormally enriched with Rb, Pb, Ba, Zr, Hf, Nb, U, Th and radiogenic Sr Aopchi, Kabanikha, littoral cones. The origin of these anomalous volcanites was likely caused by the partial melting of the mantle source close to the Sp- peridotite metasomatically reworked by the processes that may relate both to dehydratation of the subducting oceanic plate, and by the effect from the asthenospheric diapir.

New data on petrography, chemical and mineral composition of Pleistocene- Holocene basaltic lavas from shield volcanoes and scoria cones of Uksichan volcanic field (the Central Kamchatka volcanic belt, Kamchatka peninsula) show that they originate from a common magma source and parental magma, but with different degree and types of fractional crystallization. The computer simulation evidences that the lavas from late shield volcanoes were formed during isobaric crystallization (H2O ~ 2 wet %, ƒО2 – +1.2 NNO) under a pressure of 5 to 1 kbar with a step of 1 kbar. Such physical conditions correspond to relatively slow rising of magma chambers from depth of ~ 15 km to ~ 3 km. Scoria cones were generated during polibaric fractional crystallization (H2O ~ 2.6 wet. %, ƒО2 – +1.1 NNO) with decompression speed of 0.25 kbar / % crystallization. This type of differentiation assumes the relatively fast melt transport without a long storage in the crust magma chambers. Petrochemical indicators of two differentiation types are behavior of CaO and Al2O3.
