Photo Gallery

Nabukelevu volcano, whose summit lies between the two clouds near the center of this NASA Space Shuttle image, occupies the SW end of Kadavu Island at the southern end of the Fiji archipelago. Debris avalanches from collapse of the Mt. Washington lava-dome complex reached both the northern coast to the right of Cape Washington (the small peninsula at the upper left) and horseshoe-shaped Daviqele Bay (bottom center) and the south. Block-and-ash flows related to dome growth have occurred within the past few hundred years.
