Photo Gallery

The crescent-shaped island of Yali (upper left) lies above and to the left of Nisyros Island (lower right) in this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the upper left). Yali contains two distinct segments connected by a narrow isthmus formed of modern reef sediments and consists of rhyolitic obsidian domes at the NE end and pumice-fall deposits at the SW end. A 3-4 km wide caldera, much of the western side of which is filled by post collapse lava domes, is visible on historically active Nisyros Island.
