Details for: Black Peak
Most of the 3.5-km-wide caldera floor of Black Peak volcano, located NW of Chignik Bay, is occupied by a complex of nested dacitic lava domes, seen here in an aerial view within the caldera. The ice-free mid-Holocene caldera contains two small lakes. Ash-flow tuffs and block-and-ash-flow deposits from the >10-cu-km caldera-forming eruption, which occurred less than about 4000 years ago, fill the Ash Creek and Bluff Creek valleys to the west and north.
