Details for: Taveuni
The 40-km-long Taveuni Island straddles the international date line. Taveuni is the third largest of the Fiji islands and is known as the "Garden Island" because of its rich volcanic soils. The massive shield volcano is dotted by about 150 volcanic cones along a NE-SW rift extending the length of the island; some of the SW-flank vents are visible on this Space Shuttle image (with north to the upper right). Taveuni has been frequently active during the Holocene, and eruptions impacted island settlements in prehistorical time. NASA Space Shuttle image STS111-719-74, 2002 (http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/).
