From Smithsonian Institution, online database, accessed December 8, 2003: "Sergief is a small stratovolcano on SW Atka Island whose age is poorly known. The SW part of the island is older and less topographically rugged than the NE part of the island. Sergief was tentatively listed as a young volcano in the Post-Miocene Volcanoes of the World catalog of the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior (1973), but the age of its latest eruption is not precisely known."

Name Origin

This volcano was called "Sergheieff" by Lutke (1836). The name "Mount Sergief" was published by Coats (1950), but applied to a peak in a different location. A 1952 U.S. Geological Survey topographical map shows Mount Sergief as being on western Atka Island near Sergief Bay (Orth, 1971).
