Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-11207

Ile de la Possession, located immediately west of Ile de l'Est in the Crozet archipelago, is seen in this NASA Space Shuttle image (N at the top). The 14 x 19 km island is structurally complex and has an irregular shoreline. It consists of a stratovolcano intruded by ring and cone dikes and modified by block faulting, marine erosion, and uplift. Young scoria cones of probable Holocene age are distributed over much of the island. NASA Space Shuttle image ISS006-E-37990, 2003 (http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/).
