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.
