A dormant conical volcano rising into a clear blue sky, behind a wooden building in a rocky desert landscape, another volcano can be seen in the background. Mount Ngauruhoe, with Mount Tongariro behind it, from the slopes of Mount Ruapehu - all three are active volcanoes in New Zealand's Tongariro National Park.

EARTH Indonesia -- 03 Jun 2009 -- Mount Tambora Volcano, Sumbawa Island in Indonesia is featured in this image photographed by a crew member on the International Space Station. On April 10, 1815 the Tambora volcano produced the largest eruption in history. An estimated 150 cubic kilometers of tephra -- exploded rock and ash -- was produced, with ash from the eruption recognized at least 1,300 kilometers away to the northwest. While the April 10 eruption was catastrophic, historical records and geological analysis of eruption deposits indicate that the volcano had been active between 1812 and 1815. Enough ash was input into the atmosphere from the April 10 eruption to reduce incident sunlight on Earth's surface and cause global cooling, resulting in the 1816 "year without a summer". This detailed photograph depicts the summit caldera of the volcano. The huge caldera -- six kilometers in diameter and 1,100 meters deep -- formed when Tambora's estimated 4,000 meter-high peak was removed, and the magma chamber below emptied, during the April 10 eruption. Today the crater floor is occupied by an ephemeral fresh-water lake, recent sedimentary deposits, and minor lava flows and domes emplaced during the 19th and 20th centuries. Layered tephra deposits are visible along the northwestern crater rim. Active fumaroles, or steam vents, are still present within the caldera. In 2004 scientists discovered the remains of a village and two adults buried under approximately three meters of ash in a gully

The Kaikoura Peninsula extends into the sea south of the town, and the resulting upwelling currents bring an abundance of marine life from the depths of the nearby Hikurangi Trench. The town owes its origin to this effect, since it developed as a centre for the whaling industry. The name 'Kaikoura' translates to 'meal of crayfish' ('kai'- food/meal, 'koura' - crayfish) and the crayfish industry still plays a role in the economy of the region. There is also a large and readily observed colony of Southern Fur Seals at the eastern edge of the town. At low tide, better viewing of the seals can be had as the ocean gives way to a rocky base which is easily navigable by foot for quite some distance.It is also one of the best reasonably accessible places in the world to see open ocean seabirds such as albatrosses.The town has a strikingly beautiful setting, as the Seaward Kaikoura mountains, a branch of the Southern Alps come nearly to the sea at this point on the coast. Because of this, there are many walking tracks up and through the mountains. A common one for tourists is the Mt. Fyffe track, which winds up Mt. Fyffe, and gives a panoramic view of the Kaikoura peninsula from the summit.
