The western wall of Deception Island caldera is visible across Port Foster caldera bay from the Chilean Antarctic research station at Pendulum Cove. Eruptions took place at Telefon Bay, on the opposite shore of the flooded caldera during 1967 and 1970. An eruption in 1969 completely destroyed the Chilean base.
