Details for: North Island
North Island in the north-central part of elongated Lake Turkana is the northernmost and smallest of three volcanic islands in the lake. The two fresh unvegetated lava flows from a central tuff ring reach the lakeshore and form lava deltas. The broad northern flow (left) originated from a vent on the flank of the tuff ring and produced a 900-m-wide, lobate delta. The western flow (lower right) moved from the central vent through a breach in the western crater wall. Fumarolic activity occurs along the light-colored ridge at the top and along the SW coast.
