Mount Mageik (pronounced "muh-GEEK") is a stratovolcano on the Alaska Peninsula. It has no confirmed historical eruptions (one in 1946 is now deemed questionable), but its yougest eruptive products are apparently Holocene in age. A young crater lies on the northeast flank of the central summit cone, and is the site of vigorous superheated fumarolic activity with prominent sulfur deposits. ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Mageik"
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. Although an eruption in 1953 is now considered questionable and no other confirmed eruptive activity has taken place at Mount Martin, there is intense fumarolic activity within its summit crater. The summit crater is also breached to the southeast. The 300 m (984 ft)-wide summit crater is often ice-free due to the geothermal heat and contains an intermittent acidic crater lake. The fumaroles in the summit crater produce extensive sulfur deposits. ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Martin (Alaska)"

Mount Pavlof is a stratovolcano of the Aleutian Range on the Alaska Peninsula. It has been one of the most active in the United States since 1980, with eruptions recorded in 1980, 1981, 1983, 1986– 1988, and 1996– 1997. With a threat score of 95, the threat of future eruption is considered to be high. The mountain currently has basic real-time monitoring, but the USGS would like to improve instrumentation at the site. ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Pavlof"

Mount Spurr is a volcano in the Aleutian Volcanic Arc of Alaska. The current volcano sits on top of the remains of an old volcano that was destroyed in a giant debris avalanche about 10,000 years ago. Spurr has erupted twice in historic times: in 1953 and again in 1992. Both eruptions lead to falls of volcanic ash in the city of Anchorage, Alaska 130 km (81 miles) to the east. As with other Alaskan volcanoes, the proximity of Spurr to major trans-Pacific aviation routes means that an eruption of this volcano can significantly disrupt air travel. Volcanic ash can melt inside jet engines, causing them to fail. ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Spurr"
Mount Trident is an eroded volcanic complex consisting of numerous domes (up to 23), as high as 1864 m in elevation, along a northeast-southwest oriented volcanic front on the Pacific Ocean side of the Alaska Peninsula. A new dome was emplaced beginning in 1953 at an altitude of 1097 m in an amphitheater on the southwest flank of the southwest peak. ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Trident"

Novarupta, meaning "new eruption", is a volcano located on the Alaska Peninsula in the Katmai area, about 290 miles southwest of Anchorage. Novarupta sits below Mount Katmai. Its eruption of June 6- June 8, 1912 was ten times more powerful than the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens and also lead to the formation of this 841 metre (2759 ft) volcano. ...more on Wikipedia about "Novarupta"
Nunivak Island is the second largest island in the Bering Sea, 48 km (30 miles) offshore from the delta of the Yukon and Kuskokwim rivers, at about 60° North latitude. It is 4,450 km² (1.1 million acres) in area. It is volcanic in origin; most of the island is dominated by volcanic plateau 160 m (500 feet) or more above sea level. Tundra is the main landscape feature; the largest trees on Nunivak are dwarf willow trees, most less than 1.2 m (4 feet) tall. More than 40 rivers drain the tundra upland. Brackish lagoons ring the eastern and southern shores, and steep volcanic cliffs dominate the northwest shores. ...more on Wikipedia about "Nunivak Island"
