Background:

The Bouillante Chain along the west-central coast of Basse Terre consists of a N-S-trending chain of phreatomagmatic craters and offshore submarine cones that were active about 0.8-0.25 million years ago (Komorowski et al., 2005). The Bouillante geothermal field and numerous submarine hot springs attest to its recent activity.
