Background:

The elongated island of Motlav, also referred to as Mota Lava, is comprised of at least five Pleistocene basaltic stratovolcanoes capped by two well-preserved late-Pleistocene to Holocene pyroclastic cones, Tuntog and Vetnam. Tuntog is a largely pyroclastic composite cone at the SW end of the island with a 500-m-wide summit crater. Vetman, in the center of the island, is a pyroclastic cone truncated by a summit crater that is breached on the southern side. The 411-m high point of Motlav is a remnant of older volcanics along the central ridge of the 12-km-long, NE-SW-trending island.
