Details for: Takahe
A broad ice-filled caldera tops Mount Takahe in this aerial view from the east. The trachytic shield volcano rises about 2100 m above its base. Cinder cones and tuff cones are located on the flanks of the volcano, and outcrops in the center of the 8-km-wide caldera may represent the top of a lava dome. Gill Bluff, the prominent rock outcrop in the left foreground, consists of lava flows and flow breccias. Mount Takahe is the possible source of ash layers in Byrd Station and Dome C ice cores. U. S. Navy photo TMA 1718 F33 022.
