The Kookooligit Mountains are a 30 x 40 km wide shield volcano of Pleistocene-to-Holocene age in north-central St. Lawrence Island. The 673-m basaltic shield is composed of massive columnar-jointed lava flows that are overlain by more than 100 small cones (20-60 m high). Most of the cones are aligned E-W along the crest of the elongated shield volcano.
