Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

With nine volcanic peaks in a 750-squarekilometer area, Dominica, in the Lesser Antilles volcanic arc (Figure 1), has one of the highest concentrations of potentially active volcanoes in the world [Lindsay et al., 2005]. Dominica is very hilly, and there have been numerous landslides, particularly on the island’s wetter eastern and northern coasts.
