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

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

A geologist examines trachytic lava flows west of the caldera of Mount Andrus. This volcano is the youngest and best exposed of three N-S-trending volcanoes in the Ames Range of western Marie Byrd Land. A distinct 4.5-km-wide caldera truncates the summit of Mount Andrus. Weak fumarolic activity was observed in 1977 at Mount Kauffman, the northernmost volcano of the Ames Range.
