Mayotte Island

Shield volcano 660 m / 2,165 ft
France, Western Indian Ocean, -12.83°S / 45.17°E
Aktueller Status: unruhig (2 von 5)
Last update: 24 Feb 2022 (Submarine eruption off the East coast of Mayotte)

Mayotte, located in the Mozambique Channel between the northern tip of Madagascar and the eastern coast of Africa, consists two main volcanic islands, Grande Terre and Petite Terre, and roughly twenty islets within a barrier-reef lagoon complex.
A submarine eruption occurred from a vent approx. 50 km east of the islands during 2018-19, first detected by intense seismic activity and significant eastward shifts in GPS position of the Mayotte island itself, and later observed during submarine surveys.

Beschreibung

Mayotte Island in the Mozambique Channel between the northern tip of Madagascar and the eastern coast of Africa consists of two volcanoes with diverse geochemistry that were active from the Pliocene to the Holocene. Lavas on the NE were active from about 4.7 to 1.4 million years and on the south from about 7.7 to 2.7 million years. Mafic activity resumed on the north from about 2.9 to 1.2 million years and on the south from about 2 to 1.5 million years. Morphologically youthful-looking maars are present on Mayotte Island, and Zinke et al. (2003) found several pumice layers of Holocene age in gravity cores on the barrier reef-lagoon complex at Mayotte.
