Background:

The Beethoven Peninsula contains nine nunataks consisting of basaltic lava flows and associated hyaloclastites. No primary volcanic edifice is preserved and it is not clear whether the exposures represent individual volcanic vents or a volcanic field. The youngest dated rocks are less than one million years old (LeMasurier and Thomson 1990).
