Light-colored volcanic ash from the 1991 eruption mantles the surface of a lava flow from the same eruption, and the scoria cone in the center of the photo. The slopes of the central cone, the source of the ashfall, is the larger feature to the right. Photo courtesy of D. Haldar, 1991 (Geological Survey of India).
