Numerous basaltic cinder cones and lava flows occur in the panhandle of SE Alaska on both sides of Behm Canal, which descends from the upper right and divides Revillagigedo Island (upper left) from the mainland (right) in this Space Shuttle image with north to the upper right. Lava flows are located on Revillagigedo on the east side of the island along Behm Canal, on the SE side, and across Behm Canal to the east at Rudyerd Bay (right-center).
