Cabeço Verde (left center) and Cabeço do Canto (center) are two pyroclastic cones along a linear chain of volcanoes that form the western peninsula of Fayal Island. Lava flows from these cones flowed into the sea on the northern and southern coasts during the 1672-73 eruption.  Photo by Rick Wunderman, 1997 (Smithsonian Institution).
