This February 1980 photo shows the wall of a pit crater within the summit caldera of Nyamuragira volcano. The rim of the 2 x 2.3 km caldera appears in the distance. Many changes to the morphology of the caldera floor have occurred as a result of the frequent historical eruptions of Nyamuragira since the mid-19th century.
