A vigorous steam plume trails from the summit crater of Erebus volcano and casts a shadow on its western flank.  The lava-filled floor of a large summit caldera forms the flat plateau to the left of the summit cone.  Erebus provides a dramatic backdrop to the McMurdo research station on Hut Peninsula in the foreground. Photo by Bill Rose, 1983 (Michigan Technological University).
