The small 2.5 x 3.5 km island of Aogashima, seen here from the SE, is located in the central Izu Islands. It is surrounded by steep cliffs and contains a small 1.7 x 1.5-km-wide caldera. Two cones were formed inside the caldera during the latest eruption from 1780 to 1785. Photo by Richard Fiske (Smithsonian Institution).
