Description
From Miller and others (1998): "Isanotski volcano, located near the eastern end of Unimak Island, is a dissected, snow- and ice-covered stratovolcano with a basal diameter of about 10 km. It is much more deeply eroded than neighboring Shishaldin volcano and lies between Shishaldin and Roundtop along a roughly east-west alignment."
