A lava flow enters the sea along the W coast of Barren Island on 21 July 2005. The flow entered the sea at two points following the routes of the previous 1991 and 1994-95 lava flows. A plume from the summit crater of the central scoria cone is visible to the upper right, along with an active lava channel descending the flanks. Photo courtesy of Indian Coast Guard, 2005.
