Mount Katmai and Caldera
Mount Katmai is located on the Alaska Penninsula in Katmai National Park. Katmai's eruption in the 1912 - or rather of Novarupta, one of its attendant subpeak-volcanoes - was extensively covered in the early National Geographic, and was one of the first large-scale modern-era eruptions to be extensively studied and documented (relative to the smaller, tamer eruptions of California's Mount Lassen). In the same area, the Redoubt Volcano has received more coverage, having erupted in 1989-1990.
