Photo Gallery


Mount Berlin, seen here from Mount Moulton to the east, is located in the Flood Range of Marie Byrd Land, near the eastern coast of the Ross Sea. Mount Berlin consists of two coalescing shield volcanoes, Berlin Crater and Merrem Peak, each with a 2-km-wide summit caldera. The two calderas are oriented along an E-W-trending line, characteristic of Flood Range volcanoes. Berlin Crater displays active fumaroles along its western and northern caldera rims, producing the characteristic Antarctic fumarolic ice towers.
