The 16 x 9 km Koro Island is located between Fiji's two major island groups. A chain of scoria cones of late-Pleistocene or possibly Holocene age extends along the crest of the island from the NE tip (upper right) to the southern tip. The youngest lava flows are mostly confined to the plateau in the center of the island.  NASA Space Shuttle image STS111-719-74, 2002 (http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/).
