BackgroundThe St. Michael volcanic field, at the south end of Norton Sound, covers all of St. Michael and Stuart Islands with more than 55 cones and craters. Broad low shield volcanoes underlie the younger cones, and maar volcanoes are located at the SW part of the volcanic field, which covers >3000 sq km and extends inland along the Golsovia and Kogok rivers. The youngest activity is of Holocene age, and native tradition says that a village was submerged by lava three times.
