Mount Steller is part of a chain of closely spaced NE-SW-trending vents in Katmai National Park and lies between Mount Denision and Kukak volcanoes. Uncertainty surrounds the number and location of volcanic vents in this heavily glaciated area. The precise age of the most recent activity at Steller volcano is not known, but the volcano was considered to have been active during the Holocene (Nye et al., 1998).
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Steller. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Steller page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Steller.
|The rounded peak on the right-center horizon in this view from the SE of the crest of the Alaska Peninsula range is Mount Steller. The sharp-topped peak to the left of Steller and the flat-topped peak to its right are part of the summit ridge of Mount Denison. Steller and Denison are part of a closely spaced cluster of volcanic centers NE of Mount Katmai.

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.
