Details for: Zubair Group
The Zubair island group in the Red Sea rift rises from a shallow platform in the Red Sea rift in this composite NASA Landsat image with north to the top. The 5-km-long Jebel Zubair Island (lower center) is the largest of a group of 10 small islands and submerged shoals. Late-stage explosive and effusive activity has taken place on the islands of Zubair, Centre Peak (SW of Zubair), and Saba (NW of Zubair). Historical explosive activity was reported in the 19th century from Saddle Island, the largest of three small islands at the upper left. NASA Landsat7 image (worldwind.arc.nasa.gov)
