Monte Burney is a large active stratovolcano in the Patagonian region of Chile, located about 200 km NW of the town of Punta Arenas. It is the southernmost active stratovolcanoes of the volcanic chain of the Australandean arc.
The only known historical eruption of Monte Burney took place in 1910, but there are many tephra layers from eruptions within the past few thousands years that could be dated by the C14 radiocarbon method and form important marker layers in Patagonia.
