The Atka volcanic complex at the NE tip of Atka Island is one of the largest volcanic centers in the central Aleutians. It contains a caldera and is surrounded by 7 or 8 smaller cones. This view from the south near Atka village shows Korovin, the highest and northernmost of three Holocene cones of the Atka complex.  Photo by James Dickson, 1986 (courtesy of John Reeder, Alaska Div.
