Background:

Young Island is the northernmost and second largest of the Balleny Islands off the coast of Antarctica's Victoria Land. Captain Balleny, the discoverer of the islands, reported "smoke" issuing from Freeman Peak on Young Island on February 12, 1839. The initial report of a 12,000 foot volcano on Young Island proved incorrect--the island has a broad plateau-like summit reaching 1340 m. The island is almost completely mantled by ice.
