The Aleutian Ridge is located in the western part of the Aleutian Arc in the Bering Sea.


It consists of a chain of volcanic islands located along the crest of a submarine ridge with most of the active Quaternary stratocones or caldera-like volcanoes located on the northern boundaries of the Aleutian Islands.[1]
