Background:

Paulet is a small 2.5 x 3.5 km island located east of the tip of Graham Land Peninsula. The pear-shaped 353-m-high island is composed of lava flows capped by a well-preserved cinder cone with a small summit crater. The youthful morphology of the volcano was thought to indicate activity during the last 1000 years (LeMasurier and Thomson 1990). Residual heat keeps the island largely ice free throughout the year.
