Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-11065

Ice-covered Mount Burney occupies the NW part of the Muñoz Gomera Peninsula in the spectacular glaciated Patagonian fjord region of southern Chile.  The volcano lies near the center of this NASA International Space Station image (with north to the left).  The rugged extensively glaciated topography surrounding the 1758-m-high Monte Burney is smoothed by volcaniclastic deposits from the volcano.
