Details for: Amak
The blocky slopes of Amak volcano rise above grassy wavecut terraces along the eastern coast of the island. Amak, the easternmost of the Aleutian Islands, is a small island stratovolcano that lies north of the tip of the Alaskan Peninsula. Like Bogoslof volcano, it lies north of the main Aleutian volcanic front. The summit of the small volcano is only 488 m above sea level. Blocky lava flows with prominent levees were emplaced in historical eruptions during 1700-1710 and in 1796. Photo by Dave Roseneau, 2001 (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service).
