Background:

Redoubt is one of the most active and largest volcanoes in Alaska. It is a steep stratovolcano, measuring about 10 km at its base and rising to an elevation of 3108 m above sea level.
Its flanks are cut by valley created by glacial action. Redoubt has an ice filled summit crater, almost 2 km in diameter, which is breached to the north by Drift Glacier.
