Details for: Nosy-Be
Cinder cones line the shores of Nosy-Be island off the NW coast of Madagascar. The youthful-looking cones have produced very recent basaltic lava flows. Many large crater lakes are found in the central part of the island. Nosy-Be volcanics overlie Mesozoic limestones and other sedimentary rocks. Two periods of activity occurred at Nosy-Be. Initial eruptions of fluid lava flows from the western side of the massif were followed by the construction of numerous strombolian cinder cones on the western plain.
