Photo Gallery


The 16 x 9 km, shark-tooth-shaped Koro Island is located between Fiji's two major island groups. A chain of cinder cones of upper Pleistocene or possibly Holocene age extends along the crest of the island from the NE tip (upper right) to the sharp-pointed southern tip. The youngest lava flows are mostly confined to the central plateau, the flat area around the small weather cloud north of the prominent SE-trending drainage. The flat, undissected lava field extends primarily to the east.
