Background

The Axial Chain in central Basse Terre is a 15-km-long chain of stratovolcanoes that were active about 1.25 to 0.45 million years ago (Komorowski et al., 2005). The youngest eruptions took place at the southern end of the chain, at Sans Toucher volcano. The Bouillante geothermal field was developed along the coast in submarine volcaniclastic rocks.
