Volcanologists Richard Fiske and Keith Rowley drill a boulder on the east flank of Soufrière St. Vincent volcano to install benchmarks for deformation surveys.  These surveys allow detection of inflation of the volcano that often occurs prior to eruptions. Photo by John Shepherd, 1989 (University of West Indies).
