Details for: Seal Nunataks Group
Volcán Murdoch is one of a group of 16 nunataks emerging from the Larsen Ice Shelf east of Graham Land Peninsula that form the Seal Nunataks. The Seal Nunataks have been described as separate volcanic vents or remnants of a large shield volcano. Lindenberg Nunatak was observed to emit columns of thick, black smoke in 1893. Scoria was observed on the ice surface in the Seal Nunataks area during 1968, suggesting a 20th-century eruption. Photo by Oscar González-Ferrán (University of Chile).
