Background:

A large number of isolated basaltic scoria cones are located throughout Antarctica's northern Victoria Land near the western coast of the Ross Sea. One lava flow on the southern side of Cosmonaut Glacier, SW of Mount Overlord, spilled onto the glacier and diverted it, but has not yet been removed by erosion or covered by ice. Nathan and Schulte (1968) inferred a possible age for the lava flow of less than a thousand years.
