Geology

Pleistocene eruptions originally created a broad shield of basaltic andesite. Intermittently, more silicic magma was erupted, ranging from andesite to dacite to rhyodacite. Intrusive dikes and pyroclastic flow deposits can also be found in the layers of Broken Top's flanks. Ice Age glaciers have carved into the volcano on three sides, exposing its internal structure. cite web
