The roughly 9-km-wide Brava Island has numerous domes, coulées, craters, and cones across the island surface, shown in this February 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top). From the SE side towards the center are several domes, including Morro da Pedras and Morro Largo. In the center is the Fundo Grande, Cova Lima Doce, and Cova Joana craters as well as the Munhoto fault zone. Many of the more recent craters formed during phreatomagmatic eruptions.
