The ice-covered, 2036-m-high Makushin volcano on northern Unalaska Island is capped by a 2.5-km-wide caldera.
The broad, domical structure of Makushin contrasts with the steep-sided profiles of most other Aleutian stratovolcanoes.
Much of the volcano was formed during the, but the caldera, Sugarloaf cone on the ENE flank, and a cluster of about a dozen explosion pits and cinder cones at Point Kadin on the WNW flank, are of Holocene age.

Makushin is a broad, truncated stratovolcano, 1800 m high and 16 km in basal diameter, located in the central Aleutian volcanic arc of Alaska.
The volcano is capped by an ice field, and subsidiary glaciers descend the larger flanking valleys.
Although the terrain at Makushin is rugged and geometric distortion of radar images is severe, ground deformation of a few cm can be unambiguously identified with independent interferograms.

 Makushin - Introduction
From Miller and others (1998): "Makushin volcano is a broad, truncated stratovolcano, 1800 m high and 16 km in basal diameter, which occupies most of the triangular northwest extension of Unalaska Island.
Andesitic pyroclastic-flow and debris flow deposits occur in glaciated valleys on the north and south sides of the volcano indicating a Holocene age for the caldera-forming eruption (Miller and Smith, 1987).
The deposit is relatively undissected and may correlate with a blanket of airfall ash and cinders that covers part of the icefield on the volcano's northern flank.

Quartz veins are exposed on the ridge abd in the ""Makushin Vein"" at 1,500' (450 m) elevation and in steep slopes on the north side of the valley.
The lower elevation 'Makushin Vein' ranges between 4 and 7 feet (1.2 and 2.1 m) thick and is traceable for 1,200 feet (360 m).
The Makushin Vein is composed of quartz that varies from gray to white and except for one observed 3 inch (8 cm) wide sulfide and visible gold-bearing zone, is sulfide free.

The coasts are rocky and surf-worn, and the approaches are exceedingly dangerous, the land rising immediately from the coasts to steep, bold mountains.
The volcano Makushin (5691 ft./1,734.61 m) is visible from Unalaska, and the volcanic islets Bogoslof and Grewingk, which rose from the sea in 1796 and 1883 respectively, lie about 30 miles (48 km) west of the bay.
The climate of the islands is oceanic, with moderate and fairly uniform temperatures and heavy rainfall.

Makushin flung the axe down beside the pile of broken crates and walked unhurriedly to the rear door.
If Makushin had not later stayed in Tajikistan, if he had not insisted on squeezing himself into a foreign skin which rankled to this day, he would have remained in blissful ignorance of how they had crucified him, their drunk and happy guest, at the table of hospitality.
Makushin jerked, rearing backwards, and it was then that the broad fl blade of the Ura-Tyube knife sliced through his liver.
