Alaska contains over 130 volcanoes and volcanic fields which have been active within the last two million years.These volcanoes are catalogued on this AVO website: http://www.avo.alaska.edu/volcanoes/.
Of these volcanoes more than 50 have been active within historical time.

Most of Alaska's volcanoes are located along the 2,500- kilometer-long (1,550-mile-long) Aleutian Arc, which extends westward to Kamchatka. The Aleutian arc is created by subduction of the Pacific plate beneath the North American plate. Other volcanoes that have been active in the last few thousand years exist in southeastern Alaska (such as Edgecumbe) and in the Wrangell Mountains. Smaller volcanoes, some active within the last 10,000 years, are found in interior Alaska and in western Alaska as far north as the Seward Peninsula.

SPURR       O-Web        O-IMG       

Mount Spurr is a stratovolcano, the easternmost historically active volcano in the Aleutian arc and is the highest of several post-caldera, centrally located cones or domes. The youngest volcanic feature at Mount Spurr is Crater Peak, located in the breach in the caldera about 3.2 km south of Mount Spurr. Crater Peak has been the source of all late Holocene eruptive activity at Mt. Spurr. Last eruption: 1992
- Camera is located at station CKT, and looks at Crater Peak and the Spurr summit behind (11 km).
- Seismic station CKT is 11 km (7 mi) from the summit of Mount Spurr: -->CKT.EHZ.AV

REDOUBT & ILIAMNA    O-IMG      O-Web      

Camera installation and maintenance are courtesy of Hilcorp. The camera is located on Platform Anna (approximately 38 miles SE of Mt. Spurr - it was originally pointed at Mt. Spurr). It is NE of Redoubt, and has been repositioned (mid-March, 2012) to show both Redoubt (right) and Iliamna (left) in its view.

REDOUBT 1    O-IMG      O-Web      

Redoubt Volcano is a steep-sided cone. A 1.8-km-wide, ice-filled summit crater is breached on the north side by a northward-flowing glacier. The most recently active vent is located on the north side of the crater at the head of the Drift glacier. Holocene lahar deposits in the Crescent River and Drift River valleys extend downstream as far as Cook Inlet.
- Camera is located approximately 7.6 miles (12.2 km) NE of Redoubt.
- Station REF is located just to the east of Redoubt's summit: -->REF.EHZ.AV

REDOUBT 2        O-IMG       O-Web      

- Camera is located at AVO's Redoubt Hut, approximately 7.5 mi (12 km) from Redoubt's summit crater. This camera provides a view of the north flank of Redoubt. This camera is in a remote location and operates on battery power, it may not always be working. When the camera is zoomed in, it often provides a good view of the summit area. See this image for a sense of scale.

ILIAMNA 1        O-IMG       O-Web       

Iliamna volcano is a broad, deeply dissected and highly altered, roughly cone-shaped mountain, a composite stratovolcano composed of interbedded andesite lava flows and pyroclastic rocks. Steep, inaccessible 600-m-high headwalls along the southern and eastern flanks extend nearly to the summit exposing a cross section of the volcanic stratigraphy. Last eruption: 1953
- Camera is located 3.5 km (2.7 mi) to the ESE of Iliamna.

KATMAI        O-IMG       O-Web      

Katmai is a large stratovolcano with a central lake-filled caldera. It is one of five stratovolcanoes near the Novarupta dome, source of the voluminous pyroclastic flows erupted in 1912. Much of the volcano is mantled by snow and ice and several valley glaciers radiate out from the flanks and three glaciers originating from the upper caldera walls descend into the crater to the lake.
- This camera is located at station KABU on top of the Buttress Range on the south side of the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes in Katmai National Park. Katmai pass is seen on the left, Mageik Volcano is to the right. Telemetry from this camera is unreliable due to winter conditions, and the image may remain black for days at a time.
- Seismic station KBM is 13 km (8 miles) from Mt. Katmai: -->KBM.EHZ.AV

PEULIK        O-IMG       O-Web        

Mount Peulik, a small stratovolcano, is located just south of Becharof Lake on the Alaska Peninsula, approximately 540 km (325 mi) southwest of Anchorage. A lava dome occupies the summit crater. The only known historic eruption of Peulik occurred around 1814. A report of that eruption stated that Peulik's "summit collapsed with a rumble, covering the base with enormous boulders. For about a week after this event, vapor rose from almost the entire surface of the mountain."
- Camera is located at Whale Mountain, showing a flank of Peulik, Becharof Lake, the Gas Rocks, and Chiginagak in the distance. Current image interval is 60 minutes. This camera lens is often covered by snow and ice.

is located on the southwestern end of the Alaska Peninsula. Eruptive activity is generally characterized by sporadic strombolian fountaining continuing for a several-month period, most recently in 08/2016.
- Seismic station PS4A is 8 km (5 miles) from the summit.

For so many volcanoes to monitor, AVO webcams are quite scarce. However, it may be possible to find webcams of other institutions that have a volcano in their view by chance. Try these links if you are desparate for a cam :)

- Ocean Data Explorer All parties' webcams for quick and convenient viewing. (In the Real-time form, filter for sensors named "WebCam") This is the best webcam finder/viewer I have found so far!
- FAA aviation webcams
- Anchorage Weather Cams (Redoubt through the trees, Mt. Susitna, Fire Island)


- AVO home with latest activity reports
- VAAC Anchorage, VAAs

There are some great articles and comments on Alaskan volcanoes on Volcano Hotspot, see this one on Semisopochnoi for example!

SHISHALDIN        O-IMG       O-Web      

Shishaldin volcano, located near the center of Unimak Island in the eastern Aleutian Islands. Most of Shishaldin's eruptions have consisted of small ash and steam plumes, although the most recent eruption in April-May 1999 produced an ash column that reached a height of 15 km (45,000 ft) above sea level.
- This camera is located on the south flank of Isanotski, and looks west-northwest to Shishaldin.

AKUTAN        O-IMG       O-Web      

Akutan volcano is a composite stratovolcano located on Akutan Island in the eastern Aleutian Islands. The summit caldera, 2 km diameter, contains an active intracaldera cone. Akutan is one of the most frequently active volcanoes in the Aleutians, and at least 27 eruptions have occurred since 1790. Volcanic activity at Akutan is generally characterized by low-level emission of steam and ash. The last eruption occurred in 1992.

OKMOK        O-IMG       O-Web      

Okmok volcano is a 6-mile-wide caldera that occupies most of the eastern end of Umnak Island in the eastern Aleutian Islands. Last eruption was in 1997. - Seismogram: -->OKSO.BHZ.AV

Seismically monitored volcanoes without a webcam:


consists of small isolated volcanic exposures surrounded by the Fourpeaked Glacier. The exposures are found along ridge crests and cliff faces on the sides of ridges that radiate out from the ice-covered summit. Orientation of lava flows suggests the present summit of Fourpeaked is probably the vent for Fourpeaked volcano. Fourpeaked is known only from limited reconnaissance studies. The lavas are porphyritic andesite. Until the eruption of Fourpeaked on 17 September 2006 (phreatic explosions), evidence for eruptive activity in the past 10,000 years was uncertain.

is an andesitic stratovolcano with an ice-filled 10-km diameter summit caldera located on the Alaska Peninsula, 775 km (480 mi) southwest of Anchorage. Recent significant eruptions of the volcano occurred in 1993-95 and 2005. Both were moderate Strombolian eruptions producing intermittent low-level jets of incandescent lava fragments, and low-level emissions of steam and ash from the main intracaldera cone.
