Where Is Mount Erebus And Why Is The Volcano Surrounded by Ice?

When you think of a volcano, you think of bubbling lava, steam, smoke, and heat.

But there's a large volcano in the last place you would expect to find heat, Antarctica, the coldest continent!

Mount Erebus is the earth's most southerly volcano. It's located less than 900 miles from the South Pole. It's not really on the continent of Antarctica, but on an island just off the coast of the continent. The ice pack that covers Antarctica connects Mount Erebus's island with the Antarctic mainland.
