Pacific Ring of Fire Expedition. The steep slope of the East Diamante volcano is seen in this image from the upper left to the lower right-hand side. Large bl ocks of lava, denoted by the cracks, are covered by a thin layer of sediment. In the foreground, going upslope, are numerous dark (inactive) chimneys protruding out of the jumble of rocks. The one in the foreground is about 5m high.
