Mount Erebus is viewed here from the SE, with the ice-free surface of Ross Sea in the background and the mountains of Victoria Land in the distance.  Fang Ridge caps the snow-free slope (right) on the NE flank of Erebus.  The plateau right of the top of Erebus is the lava-filled floor of the summit caldera, inside which the active summit cone was constructed.  Hut Point Peninsula, the site of the McMurdo research station, is at the far left-center. Photo by Bill Rose, 1983 (Michigan Technological University).
