Beschreibung

Ile de l'Est, the easternmost island in the Crozet archipelago, is a glacially eroded basaltic stratovolcano with scoria cones concentrated on its eastern flank. A metamorphosed gabbroic complex is cut by a dense network of dikes and cone sheets that fed younger volcanic rocks. The 10 x 19 km wide Ile de l'Est is the oldest of the Crozet Islands, but contains five younger oxidized scoria cones, most of which are on the eastern side of the island. The young scoria cones may be Holocene in age (LeMasurier and Thomson, 1990).

Ile de l' Est Fotos

Magmatic gas escapes from the lava lake and creates spectacular fountains. The liquid lava is thrown many meters into the air, bursting into thousands of fragments. When liquid pieces are torn by the expanding escaping gas, lava is often torn into thin glassy threads, so-called Pele's hair. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

Mostly employees of UN and NGOs from all over the world but all working in Goma (I was the only tourist) watch the night show. Note that so much gas was expelled from the crater and the strong glow indicated lava lake inside the crater that night photography was very difficult due to overexposure with flying rocks being mostly lost within the glowing plume (night video however is excellent).
