Kamen Volcano | John Seach


Kamchatka, Russia

56.02 N, 160.593 E
summit elevation 4585 m

Kamen Volcano is located in central Kamchatka. The volcano has a history of lage sector collapses.

The most recent of Kamen's collapses (about 1200 years ago) produced a large avalanche with a volume of 4-6 cu km and a runout distance of 30 km to SE. The avalanche coincided with eruptions of Bezymianny volcano nearby, and was likely triggered by earthquakes, which accompanied Bezymianny eruptions.
