Photo Gallery

The rugged coast of the small island of Trindade reflects dissection of numerous phonolitic lava domes and steep-sided volcanic plugs. Trindade lies at the eastern end of an E-W-trending chain of submarine volcanoes and guyots extending about 1100 km from the continental shelf off the Brazilian coast. The youngest volcanism, at Vulcao de Paredao on the SE tip of the island, constructed a pyroclastic cone with lava flows that reached the sea.
