The Iamalele volcanic center on Fergusson Island is an active geothermal area (the white zones) seen in this May 2020 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; image is approximately 14 km across). The field contains lava domes and an ignimbrite deposit possibly related to caldera collapse. Satellite image courtesy of Planet Labs, 2020.
