AbstractHoodoo Mountain volcano is a Quaternary volcano located on the north side of the Iskut River, in the Coast Mountains of northwestern British Columbia. An ice cap, 3-4 km in diameter, covers the summit region of the volcano and obscures the youngest volcanic stratigraphy. In 1995, an Industrial Partners Program project involving the Geological Survey of Canada, Golder Associates Ltd., and several universities, was initiated. The aim of this field-based project was to map the thickness and shape of the ice cap with radar to produce an image of the sub-ice topography of the summit to the volcano. The survey comprised Global Positioning System-controlled traverses across the ice sheet using both ice radar and ground-penetrating radar. The radargrams give clues to the evolution of Hoodoo Mountain volcano and are critical for assessing the nature and magnitude of hazards that would arise from renewed volcanism.
