Taveuni Island in Fiji is situated along a larger ridge and is approximately 40 km long, shown in this composite image of Sentinel-2 (3 and 6 July) and Landsat 8 (1 July) 2019 images courtesy of Planet Labs (N is at the top). Around 150 vents are aligned along the length of the NW-SE oriented island. The Lake Tagimoucea Basin rift zone is about one-third of the way down and contains lavas offset by faulting.
