The Lesser Antilles

Soufriere Hills volcano (915 m) in Montserrat and Morne Aux Diables (861 m) in Dominica are both VUELCO project target volcanoes.

In June 2012 I went to conduct a campaign GPS survey of Morne Aux Diables and other volcanoes on the island. I also hiked out through the ‘Valley of Desolation’ to visit the ‘Boiling Lake’.

Immediately following this campaign I popped across to do some brief work on Soufriere Hills with the team at the Montserrat Volcano Observatory (MVO). I assisted with some helicopter fieldwork to take some GPS and EDM measurements, as well as updating one of the permanent observation cameras.
