Details for: Martin
Mount Martin is large, glacier-covered stratovolcano at the southern end of the group of volcanoes in the Katmai area. Steam rises from the summit crater and sulfur stains the snow and ice in this 1990 view. The crater, which is breached to east, is the site of intense fumarolic activity and sometimes contains a small crater lake. The volcano was named for George C. Martin, the first person to visit and describe the Katmai area after the 1912 eruption. Photo by Christina Neal, 1990 (U.S. Geological Survey, Alaska Volcano Observatory).

Description: Mount Martin is a stratovolcano, located on the Alaska Peninsula, United States. It is one of the volcanoes in the vicinity of the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes.
