Piton de la Fournaise | Cratères Bory and Dolomieu
thumb

View towards north. The smaller Cratère Bory (2632 m, centre) is older than the more prominent Cratère Dolomieu (right side) which has assumed its shape during a major eruption in 2007. Emptying of the magma chamber beneath led to a massive collapse resulting in a caldera with a depth of 350 m. An ongoing eruption and the caldera Enclos Fouqué are seen in the background.
