Volcanoes on SP (index)

Sign the Climber's Log


Volcanoes comprise a good proportion of mountains on Earth, indeed if you counted those under the ocean they would be the most numerous. As a climber of volcanoes rather than Alpine or Himalayan peaks, I thought it would be useful to compile a list of all the ~500 volcanoes that have their own pages on summitpost so that they are properly represented and easier to find. The latter point follows from the issue that not all volcanoes have 'volcano' somewhere in the name or are linked to others nearby. This page will also help people become familiar with volcanic regions they might not otherwise have known about. (Although this list is largely complete there are a few odd pages that have no coordinate information nor are attached to any ranges so they may have been missed.)

What's Included: 1) Any location with its own eruptive history such as side vents and domes with their own names. Cinder cone and other vent fields covering small areas will be listed by their group name e.g. San Francisco Volcanic Field, and marked with an *. The odd listing might be a trip report or speculative page if that's the best there is. 2) Each highest remnant of a volcano or caldera if there's more info than for the original volcano/caldera (e.g. Brokeoff Mountain as there's nothing on what was Mt. Tehama but not Yellowstone for which there is plenty of info).

What's Not Included:1) The 60 or so smaller frozen plugs and dozens of lava flow and pyroclastic covered mountains (e.g. Devils Tower, the northern Sierra Nevada and Absarokas respectively) as in each case there's not much of a volcano left or there's an indeterminate vent. 2) Mountains that cannot be confirmed as volcanic even if they look quite suspicious. 3) There are also several volcanoes with just photos but no pages, these are shown in the Pageless volcanoes album.

Name conventions: Most uses of 'Mount' or 'Volcán de' or 'El' etc that precede names have been omitted where such terms are not commonly used (as far as I know), this is for ease of alphabetising. Where these terms are commonly used, the term has been moved to the end e.g. 'Pico de Orizaba' => 'Orizaba, Pico de.' I might have taken some liberties with Spanish accents over letters for ease of browser search / find box use.

Future modifications: Maybe some kind of interactive map. The Islas Canarias is sufficiently well organised that I have yet to feel compelled to replicate this section. Feel free to make suggestions on how this could be better structured, if I've missed any peaks or anything else! Thanks!

Recent updates: Lonquimay, Calbuco, Tunupa, Marmolejo, Maipo. Volcanoes currently listed here: 460

Handy external links: Global Volcanism Program, USGS volcano site, Basin and Range extent, Cascade extent, Colorado Tertiary volcanic deposits, Photovolcanica, Stromboli online

See the sidebar for other existing SP pages that relate to volcanoes and volcanism! Feel free to attach new Area/Range or general album pages, but not mountains or photos as there will usually be existing places for those. Thanks. :)

Awesome List -- Mexico??

Great work compiling this list! It is obvious that you have put a ton of work into in. One suggestion is to change Mexico's heading from "Central America." With the locations listed alphabetically, putting Mexico in with Central America is confusing, because Mexico is not part of Central America, it is part of North America. Again, great work on an excellent list!

Re: Awesome List -- Mexico??

Glad you appreciate it. The reasoning behind the current structure is that the first section is done by geological location. Mexico's prolific volcanoes as I'm sure you know are a result of the Cocos plate subducting along its western margin, as is the case for the rest of Central America. This subduction region terminates at its north end with the Baja rift zone, and at its south end around the Costa Rica/Panama border. Mexico's northern volcanoes in Sonora etc are more part of the Basin and Range formation, but given that there is only one example of this on SP I lumped it in with the rest. I shall certainly put some more thought into how this page could be better organised, thanks for your suggestions.

Re: Awesome List -- Mexico??

Great point Baarb, that makes a lot of sense. I actually don't know that much regarding the geology of the volcanoes. Thanks for the brief lesson.

Ortiz Mtns

Have you looked into the Ortiz Mountains just east of the Sandia Crest in NM. They once formed an old volcano and are very similiar in nature to nearby Mt Taylor. The highest point in the Ortiz Mountains is Placer Moutain. http://www.summitpost.org/album/576746/My-HDR-Image-Photography.html Hope this helps and thanks for putting together this great page.
