Hi - I was browsing, came across your web site, and then your short description of the active volcano Vailulu`u. Thought you might like a perspective view of Vailulu`u, created from the bathymetry we collected when we discovered it; see attached. Feel free to post it on your site for all to enjoy. I have spent many weeks on Ta`u doing geology with my students, and it is a place dear to my heart. Will be back in August to do some high precision GPS measurements, with the aim of assessing the general stability of the island. Next spring we will return to take a submersible down into the crater to get a better look at what's there. Soifua, Stan Hart, Woods Hole Oceanograhic Institution
