Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Veniaminof
A steaming cinder cone on the western floor of the summit caldera of Veniaminof volcano was the source of the dark lava flow that melted through the glacial icecap. This photo was taken from the SE on June 15, 1984, two months after the eruption ended, and shows the rim of the 8 x 11 km wide caldera in the background. The caldera rim is breached by Cone Glacier on the west side (at the extreme left) and is completely overtopped by glaciers on the south and SE sides. Veniaminof is one of the most voluminous and most active volcanoes on the Alaska Peninsula. Photo by Alaska Volcano Observatory, U.S. Geological Survey, 1984.
