DESCRIPTION
From Smithsonian Institution, online database, accessed December 8, 2003: "Mount Steller is part of a chain of closely spaced NE-SW-trending vents in Katmai National Park and lies between Mount Denision and Kukak volcanoes. Uncertainty surrounds the number and location of volcanic vents in this heavily glaciated area. The precise age of the most recent activity at Steller volcano is not known, but the volcano was considered to have been active during the Holocene (Nye et al., 1998)."
