Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-11112

The southern two-thirds of Vanua Lava Island is seen in this NASA Space Shuttle image. Suretamatai volcano forms much of the island, with the most recent activity occurring in the northern part of the island near the area with small clouds at the top of the image. The Pleistocene Ngéré Kwon volcano forms the peninsula at the bottom of the image, and small offshore islands to the right are uplifted reef limestones. Historical activity began during the 19th century and has been restricted to moderate explosive eruptions. NASA Space Shuttle image ISS006-E-40035, 2003 (http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/).
