Mount Terror is a large basaltic shield volcano forming the eastern portion of Ross Island with numerous pyroclastic cones and lava domes. The youngest dated rocks are 0.82 million years ago (Ma) from the lower slopes of Terror and 0.8 Ma from the summit of Terra Nova, a large basaltic cone on the W flank (LeMasurier and Thomson, 1990).
