The diameter ranges from 500 m to 3000 m and the depth from 20 to 300 m – appreciably larger than common pockmarks. It is argued here...

At ca. 9 ka, a stratocone on the eastern half of the island partially collapsed producing a 4-km-wide crater. Rhyolitic dome-forming eruptions followed from vents in the newly...

Two contrasting groups of craters were formed in the 1970 eruption, showing that different active fissures and eruptive dynamics were operating. One group consists of ‘maar-like’ craters, whereas...
