There are no Holocene eruptions known for Royal Society Range.

The following references are the sources used for data regarding this volcano. References are linked directly to our volcano data file. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title. Additional discussion of data sources can be found under Volcano Data Criteria.

A large number of basaltic cinder cones and lava flows are located in the Royal Society Range of southern Victoria Land. Most vents are of Quaternary age. More than 50 basaltic vents, ranging from tiny scoria mounds to cinder cones up to 300-m high, occupy the foothills of the Royal Society Range. Tephra layers in the ice of Kempe Glacier, Potassium-Argon ages as young as 0.08 million years old, and well-preserved geomorphic forms all argued for young, possibly even Holocene ages (LeMasurier and Thomson, 1990).
