Soufriere Saint Vincent Volcano, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

A blocky lava dome, 130 m high and more than 840 m wide filled much of the crater floor of Soufriere St. Vincent volcano during the 1979 eruption.

Dome growth began in May, after a series of powerful explosive eruptions April 13-15, and continued until October.

Steam continues to rise from the dome in this 1983 photo from the SW crater rim.
