There are far more volcanoes in Antarctica that you or I would think. Here is the list of 35 volcanoes...but only three of them are reported to be active, Mt Erebus being the most famous and most active.

Mount Andrus    Mount Berlin    Mount Bird    Bridgeman Island    Brown Peak (Sturge Island)

Coulman Island    Deception Island    Mount Discovery     Mount Erebus

Mount Frakes    Gaussberg     Mount Hampton    Mount Harcourt    Hudson Mountains

Mount Melbourne    Mount Morning    Mount Moulton    Mount Murphy    Mount Overlord

Paulet Island    Penguin Island    Lars Christensen Peak     The Pleiades    Royal Society Range

Seal Nunataks    Mount Sidley    Mount Siple     Mount Steere   Mount Takahe    Mount Terra Nova   

Toney Mountain    Mount Dimitra     Mount Brown    Mount Christos   and    Mount Waesche

I am not much of a seismologist so I slobbishly took the easy way out and just googled Wiki which you too can do for much more info on the status of these volcanoes at...

NEWSFLASH! There was a new volcano discovered under the ice in the Marie Byrd Land region of West Antarctica just two years ago in 2013 which you can read all about in the Daily Mail for that year in the following link...

So that might make it 36?
