Sergief is a small stratovolcano on SW Atka Island whose age is poorly known. The SW part of the island is older and less topographically rugged than the NE part of the island. Sergief was tentatively listed as a young volcano in the Post-Miocene Volcanoes of the World catalog of the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior (1973), but the age of its latest eruption is not precisely known.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Sergief. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Sergief page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

Sergief volcano on SW Atka Island lies below and to the left of the center of this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the lower right). The SW part of the Atka Island is older and less topographically rugged than the NE part of the island, and the age of this small stratovolcano is not precisely known. The large embayment at the right-center is Podsopochni Bay. Portage Lagoon and Sergief Bay at the upper right almost bisect the island.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
