DESCRIPTION
Yogodzinski and others (2015) [1] dredged western Aleutian submarine volcanic cones at "an unnamed location 300 km west of Buldir Island, which we refer to as the Western Cones area. This area includes five small cones, aligned along a volcanic front for a distance of about 70 km. The largest of the cones, which has a base diameter of 5-10 km and is 600 m high, is similar in size to emergent volcanoes in the western Aleutians, such as Buldir, Kiska, and Little Sitkin."
