Background:

Frosty volcano, the youngest of two large volcanic structures of the Cold Bay volcanic complex, is the westernmost Holocene volcano of the Alaska Peninsula. The oldest products of the roughly 100 cu km Cold Bay complex, which lies SW of the village of Cold Bay, form the glacially dissected late-Pliocene to early Pleistocene Morzhovoi Volcanics at the southern end of the complex. Frosty Peak to the north is a symmetrical late-Pleistocene to Recent stratovolcano constructed within the southernmost of two coalescing craters. The western wall of the ice-filled northern crater is breached by a large valley glacier. The symmetrical summit cone rises about 600 m above the floor of the southern crater.
