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

Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

Photo Gallery


Pyroclastic cones dot the surface of the Kookooligit Mountains in north-central St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea. Kookooligit is a 30 x 40 km wide, 673-m-high shield volcano of Pleistocene-to-Holocene age overlain by more than 100 small cinder cones, most of which are aligned E-W along the crest of the elongated shield volcano. The cones were the source of dominantly alkali basaltic and basanitic lavas flows.
