The northern, western, and southern flanks of Socorro are dominated by silicic lava domes and flows, which cover about 80% of the surface of the island. This view shows Cerro Evermann from the SW coast. Trachyte and rhyolite lava flows from summit and flank vents extend into the sea and have produced an irregular shoreline, with the distal portions of lava flows forming numerous small peninsulas.
