Details for: Chiginagak
Chiginagak is a glacier-covered stratovolcano with a deep breach on the SW flank (right) that extends to its small summit crater. The most recent products of the volcano are an unglaciated lava flow and an overlying block-and-ash-flow deposit on the east side. Reports of historical activity are sparse. An ash eruption may have occurred in 1971. Hot springs occur near the base of the volcano on the north flank. Photo by Alaska Volcano Observatory, U.S. Geological Survey
