Background:

The 10-km-wide Herbert Island, the SW-most of the Islands of the Four Mountains group, lies across a strait SW of Mount Cleveland. Herbert is a classic, symmetrical stratovolcano whose summit is broadly truncated by a 2-km-wide caldera that is breached to NW. No historical eruptions have been recorded from 1280-m-high Herbert volcano, which, like many other Aleutian volcanoes, has not been studied geologically.
