Thick beds of basaltic tephra of Holocene age originating from an unknown Quaternary volcanic center have been found near Crow Lagoon, north of Prince Rupert near the southern tip of the Alaskan panhandle. Ballistically emplaced bombs imply a nearby source, which remains unidentified (Souther and Weiland, 1993). The tephra beds are located along the south side of the Khutzeymateen Inlet, about 40 km north Prince Rupert.
