Photo Gallery

Adagdak, at the NE tip of Adak Island, consists of a small stratovolcano capping an older shield volcano exposed on the southern side of the complex. Three stages of volcanism were mapped, the youngest of which was a lava dome dated at about 0.21 million years. Andrew Bay Hot Springs lie along the coast west of Mount Adagdak, and the northern part of Adak Island has been investigated for geothermal power potential.
