Cloud-draped Morne Diablotins (center) is the largest volcano on Dominica and one of the largest of the Lesser Antilles. It is seen here from the south beyond Morne Trois Piton volcano at the far right. Two coalescing lava domes form the summit of 1430-m-high Morne Diablotins, and precolumbian pyroclastic-flow aprons on the NW flank are relatively unmodified by erosion. Historical eruptions are not known from Morne Diablotins. However the volcano has a youthful appearance, and seismic swarms have occurred nearby in recent years.
