Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Grille, La
Pyroclastic cones drape the eastern flanks of La Grille shield volcano at the northern end of Grand Comore Island (also known as Ngazidja). La Grille contrasts with its larger and more well-known neighbor to the south, Karthala volcano, in its lack of a summit caldera and in its abundance of pyroclastic cones up to 800 m in height. Recent lava flows, some perhaps as young as a few hundred years, have reached the sea from fissures on the lower western, northern, and eastern flanks of La Grille.
