Details for: Ambitle
Ambitle (left-center) is the larger of two adjacent islands forming the Feni Islands. The 13-km-long Ambitle is a dominantly Pliocene-to-Pleistocene stratovolcano with a 3-km-wide central caldera. A maar on the eastern side of post-caldera lava domes formed about 2300 years ago. Thermal areas are found within the caldera and just off the western coast. Babase Island (right-center), immediately to the NE of Ambitle, is a Pleistocene stratovolcano and lava dome connected by a narrow isthmus.
