Details for: Liamuiga
The jagged eastern crater rim of Mount Liamuiga volcano, comprising the NW end of St. Kitts (St. Christopher) Island, conceals a steep-walled, 1-km-wide summit crater. The jagged peak at left center is a lava dome on the eastern crater rim forming the high point of the island. The most recent major eruptions at the volcano less than 2000 years ago produced pyroclastic flows and mudflows whose deposits underlie populated coastal areas. Reports of possible historical eruptions in 1692 and 1843 are considered uncertain. Photo by Kirstie Simpson, 2001 (Seismic Research Unit, University of West Indies).
