Photo Gallery

The SE side of a Holocene central dome at Kialagvik volcano rises 350 m above a surrounding ice field. Kialagvik is a small, poorly known stratovolcano that lies at the NE end of a segment of the Alaska Peninsula that includes neighboring Chiginagak and Yantarni volcanoes. Andesitic lava flows and overlying dacitic block-and-ash-flow deposits from Kialagvik are exposed broadly on the SW flank and in a small area on the NE flank. No historical activity is known from Kialagvik.
