The small summit crater of symmetrical Shishaldin volcano produces an almost constant steam plume. Strong winds in this 1978 view from the east also sweep streams of linear atmospheric clouds across the flanks of the volcano. The dominantly basaltic volcano is built atop an older volcano, remnants of which can be seen on the west and NE sides.
