Details for: Edgecumbe
The Pleistocene-to-Holocene Mount Edgecumbe volcanic field covers about 260 sq km of Kruzov Island west of Sitka in the SE panhandle of Alaska. This aerial view shows colorful slopes of oxidized scoria on Crater Ridge in the foreground, with an unnamed crater in the background. Crater Ridge is truncated by a 1.6-km-wide, 240-m deep caldera. The youngest eruptions from Mount Edgecumbe are about 4000 years old. Mount Edgecumbe itself, a 967-m-high stratovolcano with a well-defined crater, is the largest volcano of the Edgecumbe field.
