The SE side of a Holocene dome at Kialagvik rises 350 m above a surrounding glacier. It lies at the NE end of a segment of the Alaska Peninsula that includes neighboring Chiginagak and Yantarni volcanoes. Lava flows and overlying block-and-ash-flow deposits from Kialagvik are exposed on the SW flank and in a small area on the NE flank.
