Mount Rittmann, a roughly 8 x 5 km caldera under the Aviator Glacier in the Melbourne Volcanic Province, has been dated at between about 4 and 0.07 million years ago (Martin et al., 2010). Active fumaroles, heated ground, and ice and snow hummocks occur near the caldera rim.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Mount Rittmann. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Mount Rittmann 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.

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.
