The Ellesmere Island Volcanics are a Late Cretaceous group of volcanoes and lavas in the Qikiqtaaluk Region of northern Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, Canada. This page is about a volcanic rock For the ghost town see Rhyolite Nevada, and for the satellite system see Rhyolite/Aquacade. Late Cretaceous (100mya - 65mya refers to the second half of the Cretaceous Period, named after the famous white Chalk cliffs of southern England Plate tectonics and hotspots Divergent plate boundaries At the Lava is molten rock expelled by a Volcano during an eruption When first expelled from a volcanic vent it is a Liquid at Temperatures Qikiqtaaluk Region, Qikiqtani Region ( Inuktitut: ᕿᑭᖅᑖᓗᒃ or Baffin Region is an administrative region of Nunavut Ellesmere Island is part of the Qikiqtaaluk Region of the Canadian territory of Nunavut.

The Arctic Cordillera, sometimes called the Arctic Rockies, are a vast deeply dissected mountain system running along the northeastern shore of North America EARTH was a short-lived Japanese vocal trio which released 6 singles and 1 album between 2000 and 2001 Even though these volcanics are about 90 million years old, the volcanoes and cinder are still able to be seen. A cinder is a pyroclastic material Cinders are extrusive Igneous rocks Cinders are similar to Pumice, which has so many cavities and is such low-density  The volcanics of the Maskell Inlet Assemblage are mostly made up of tuffs, with smaller flows. Tuff (from the Italian "tufo" is a type of rock consisting of consolidated volcanic ash ejected from vents during a volcanic eruption Compositionally these are mostly andesite or undifferentiated andesite/basalt.

The volcanics on Ellesmere Island has been uncertainly associated to both the early volcanic activity of the Iceland hotspot and the Alpha Ridge. The Iceland hotspot is a hotspot which is partly responsible for the high volcanic activity which has formed the island of Iceland. For a ridge in Alaska see Alpha Ridge Alaska The Alpha Ridge is a major volcanic ridge under the Arctic Ocean between the Canada The Ellesmere Island Volcanics are part of the High Arctic Large Igneous Province. The High Arctic Large Igneous Province (HALIP is a major Late Cretaceous Large igneous province located in the Arctic.
Canada has examples of almost every type of Volcano found on Earth, including Stratovolcanoes Calderas Cinder cones See also List of volcanoes Western Canada is commonly thought to occupy a gap in the Pacific Ring of Fire, although that is not actually true The Strand Fiord Formation is a Cretaceous volcanic component located on northwestern and west-central Axel Heiberg Island, Nunavut, Canada. The Iceland hotspot is a hotspot which is partly responsible for the high volcanic activity which has formed the island of Iceland. The Iceland Plume is an upwelling of anomalously hot rock in the Earth's mantle beneath Iceland whose origin probably lies at the boundary between the Year 2007 ( MMVII) was a Common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar in the 21st century.
