Photo Gallery


Vella Lavella Island (left center) lies in the New Georgia Islands in the Solomon Islands chain. North lies to the upper left in this NASA Space Shuttle image. Nonda volcano, the youngest volcanic feature of Vella Lavella Island, is a lava dome located within a well-preserved crater in the northern part of the island. The Paraso thermal area, the small light-colored area at the upper left-center portion of the island, displays solfataras, hot springs, and boiling mud pots. Kolombangara Island is at the upper right.
