Volcanic Seven Summits – Posted in: Intl Collections
The Volcanic Seven Summits are the highest volcanoes on each of the seven continents.
Just as the Seven Summits are the highest peaks on each of the seven continents. The summits must be an actual eruptive volcanic center, not merely made of volcanic rocks which were uplifted by other geological processes. In addition, a topographic prominence of at least 1,000 feet is required, so that the list includes only genuine volcanic mountains and not minor outpourings of lava which happened to leak to the Earth’s surface in high-altitude regions.
