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).
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Royal Society Range. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Royal Society Range page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. 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.
