Description
Krainy Volcano is a central-type volcanic edifice, the eastern part of which is torn off by a caldera-forming discharge. The volcano is relatively well preserved due to the powerful lava flows covering it. The edifice of the volcano is poorly eroded. This is a lava volcano, composed mainly of andesite-basalts (visible power of 100-200 m), except for the basalt flows overlapping the southeastern slope of the volcano. Volcanogenic-sedimentary deposits of the Upper Pliocene that were discovered in the lower reaches of the Pravaya Kedrovaya River serve as a pedestal. Samples of lava from the tip of the volcano show stable inverse magnetization.
