Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-03238
The blocky surface of Chaos Jumbles in the foreground was produced by collapse of a portion of the Chaos Crags lava dome complex in the background about 1650 CE. The cold rock avalanche traveled 5 km from its source, and may have occurred in the absence of any eruptive activity. Three successive lobes of the avalanche cover an area of 8 km2.
