An aerial view of the Maug Islands from the NE shows Kitashima (North Island) at the right margin, Higashishima (East Island) in the foreground, and Nishishima (West Island) in the background. The islands enclose a 2.5-km-wide submarine caldera that contains a submerged lava dome that rises to within about 20 m of the ocean surface.  Photo by Dick Moore, 1990 (U. S. Geological Survey).
