|Hayes volcano, located in a remote and rugged part of the Alaska Range, is almost totally covered by glacial ice and was not discovered until 1975. The volcano, named for the Hayes glacier, consists of remnants of a largely snow-and-ice covered edifice that has been destroyed by catastrophic eruptions. The exposed rock in the foreground is South Dome. Hayes produced the most voluminous Holocene eruptions in the Cook Inlet area between about 3800 and 3400 years ago and was active as recently as about 1000 years ago.

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.

|WOVOdat||WOVOdat is a database of volcanic unrest; instrumentally and visually recorded changes in seismicity, ground deformation, gas emission, and other parameters from their normal baselines. It is sponsored by the World Organization of Volcano Observatories (WOVO) and presently hosted at the Earth Observatory of Singapore.|
|EarthChem||EarthChem develops and maintains databases, software, and services that support the preservation, discovery, access and analysis of geochemical data, and facilitate their integration with the broad array of other available earth science parameters. EarthChem is operated by a joint team of disciplinary scientists, data scientists, data managers and information technology developers who are part of the NSF-funded data facility Integrated Earth Data Applications (IEDA). IEDA is a collaborative effort of EarthChem and the Marine Geoscience Data System (MGDS).|
