Details for: Farallon de Pajaros
The small 2-km-wide island of Farallon de Pajaros (Uracas) is the northernmost and most active volcano of the Mariana Islands. It has been referred to as the "Lighthouse of the western Pacific." The symmetrical, sparsely vegetated central cone lies within a caldera, remnants of which form the prominent peak seen here in 1980 at the center along the SE coast. Flank fissures from historical eruptions have fed lava flows that form platforms along the coast. Both summit and flank vents have been active during historical time.
