The town of Soufriere lies just NW of the 10-km-wide Qualibou caldera. This view from the NW looks across Soufriere Bay to the rounded Terre Blanche lava dome. The western caldera wall lies between the dome and the gentle ridge behind the town. The ridge in the background to the left of Terre Blanche is the back wall of the 3.5 x 5 km caldera, which was formed during powerful eruptions about 32-39,000 years ago.
