Images of Eroding Volcanic Features
Shiprock, New Mexico, a volcanic neck
Shiprock, New Mexico is one of the most familiar examples of a volcanic neck in the world. It is the core, or throat, of an extinct deeply eroded volcano. The Navajo name is TsÚ BitʼaʼÝ, "rock with wings" or "winged rock. The volcano erupted about 27 million years ago, and stands some 1,500 feet above the adjacent plains. A series of exposed dikes extend outwards from the edifice.
