Mount Spurr (Alaska, USA)

Mount Spurr, Alaska

Volcano: Mount Spurr (see Mount Spurr at the Smithsonian Institution website in a new tab)
Type: Volcanic Plume
Description: Mount Spurr, the highest volcano of the Aleutian arc, is a large lava dome constructed at the center of a roughly 5 km-wide horseshoe-shaped caldera that is open to the south. Before the 1992 eruption, a small crater lake occupied the bottom of Crater Peak's crater. As with other Alaskan volcanoes, the proximity of Spurr to major trans-Pacific aviation routes means that an eruption of this volcano can significantly disrupt air travel. Volcanic ash can cause jet engines to fail.
