Sheveluch has undergone several large flank collapse events to shape the edifice we see today. The frequent collapses of lava-dome complexes have produced numerous debris avalanches whose deposits cover much of the area south of the volcano. The light-colored hummocky deposits in the foreground were produced during the latest collapse in 1964.
