Beerenberg (dutch for Bear Mountain), a genuine strato-volcano, and the worlds northernmost active volcano above sea level, rising 2277m high, straight up from the deep sea floor more than 2000m below its shores. Beerenberg resides on the remote Norwegian island Jan Mayen, at 71ºN, along the northern part of the MAR (Mid-Atlantic Ridge), 600km NE of Iceland, 500km E of Greenland, 1000km NW of Norway. Here you see the SW part of the crater rim (crater 1.5 km across), w/ the highest peak King Haakon VII top at the far end. Last eruptions occurred in 1970, 1973 and 1985, all from vents in the NE flank. No eruptions from the main crater for ages, although minor smoke and steam can still be seen inside it, along the northern base of the rim. Picture taken during our 2008 expedition, where we as the first in the world encircled the whole rim, which holds 11 peaks above 2000m ASL. More of that here: http://www.pbase.com/eaaseth/beerenberg
