Eruptions of Mt Burney
Eruptions from Mt Burney volcano have produced regionally widespread tephra fall.
An eruption 3,830±390 years ago had negative impact on forest and aquatic ecosystems southeast of the volcano. Release of SO2 produced soil and lake acidification, nutrient leaching, and increased soil erosion.
