Gorely Volcano, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky

(90+ reviews on the web)
Volcano Nature / Park
Gorely is a volcano located in the southern part of Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia. It consists of five overlapping stratovolcanoes and is one of the most active in southern Kamchatka. Gorely is a large, long-lived shield-type volcano that is currently in an eruptive phase. Prior eruptions occurred in 1980-81 and 1984-86.Several complexes compose the overall volcanic structure: - ancient Pra-Gorely volcano which measures 20–25 km in diameter; - a 12 km diameter caldera; - thick stratum of ignimbrites totaling a volume of 100 km3; - post-caldera eruption cinder cones; - modern edifice – “Young Gorely” composed of three large superimposed cones and 11 associated craters forming a NW-SE trending intra-caldera ridgeline; - a complex of 40 modern subsidiary cones on the slopes of “Young Gorely”.In 2010, activity began to increase, suggesting the Volcano was waking up. The Aviation Color Code has been raised to Yellow, and a new vent has been discovered on the inner South east wall of the crater
