We investigated the sediment runoff of rivers for the territories of the Avachinskaya and Northern groups of volcanoes (the Klyuchevskaya group of volcanoes, and the Shiveluch volcano), constituting zones of active volcanism on the territory of Kamchatka Peninsula. Calculations for the rivers of the study territories were done in terms of the specifically developed regional model based on multiple regression correlation between the amount of suspended sediment runoff and its formation factors. An aggregate assessment is made of the sediment runoff for the eastern coast of Kamchatka into the Pacific Ocean.
