Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Edziza
The central ice-covered summit complex of Mount Edziza is seen here from the SW rising above the Kitsu and Big Raven plateaus. Late-Tertiary lava flows form the foreground. The low conical hills at the base of the icecap are Quaternary volcanic cones. Mount Edziza contains a 2-km-wide, ice-filled caldera that truncates its summit, and numerous ice-contact features and products of subglacial eruptions are found. The complex contains numerous Holocene pyroclastic cones, some of which are younger than about 1300 years. Photo by Jack Souther, 1992 (Geological Survey of Canada).
