Description

Steam and clouds shroud the top of the volcanic island of Augustine in the Cook Inlet. Across the inlet, Mt. Douglas rises above the Aleutian Range on the Alaskan Peninsula.
Augustine volcano is one of the most active volcanoes in Cook Inlet, having a symmetrical cone rising 1,254 meters above the sea level. This volcano has erupted in 1812, 1883, 1935, 1963-64, 1976 and 1986, and surprisingly, the intervals between these eruptions have reduced from 70 to 10 years.
