Details for: Suretamatai
The southern two-thirds of Vanua Lava Island is seen in this NASA Space Shuttle image. Suretamatai volcano forms much of the island, with the most recent activity occurring in the northern part of the island, near the area with small cloud banks at the top of the image. The Pleistocene Ngere Kwon volcano forms the peninsula at the bottom of the image, and small offshore islands at the right are uplifted reef limestones. Historical activity, beginning during the 19th century, has been restricted to moderate explosive eruptions. NASA Space Shuttle image ISS006-E-40035, 2003 (http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/).
