Steep-sided Morne Watt, seen here from the NW, is a lava-dome complex surrounded by block-and-ash flow deposits.  The 1224-m-high volcano was constructed south of the Wotten Waven caldera and is flanked by Morne Anglais (4 km to the SW) and the Grand Soufrière Hills volcano, 3 km to the east.  The renowned Valley of Depression geothermal area cuts the NE flank of Morne Watt and lies out of view to the left. Photo by Lee Siebert, 2002 (Smithsonian Institution).
