Stratovolcano

 

Sinarka is an active stratovolcano that erupted four times between 1725 and 1878. The largest eruption began in 1872 and continued until 1878. The eruption produced pyroclastic flows, some of which are thought to have destroyed the small village of Ainu, and constructed a significant lava dome.
