Hoodoo Mountain volcano (HMV), a Quaternary composite volcano in northwestern British Columbia, is a well-exposed example of peralkaline, phonolitic icecontact and subglacial volcanism. Its distinctive morphology and unique volcanic deposits are indicative of subglacial, within-ice, and/or ice-contact volcanic eruptions. Distinct ice-contact deposits result from three different types of lava–ice interaction: (1) vertical cliffs of lava, featuring finely jointed flow fronts up to 200 m in height, resulted from lava flows being dammed and ponded against thick masses of ice; (2) pervasively-jointed, dense lava flows, lobate intrusions, and domes associated with mantling deposits of poorly-vesiculated breccia are derived from volcanic...
