The 15 x 25 km island of Sao Vicente contains mafic Holocene lavas covering prominent peninsulas on the eastern and NE sides (Mitchell-Thome, 1976). The island has an irregular shoreline. The largest indentation is formed by a caldera on the NW coast that is breached by the sea and forms the setting for the port of Mindelo, the island's largest village.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Sao Vicente. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Sao Vicente page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Sao Vicente.
|The 15 x 25 km volcanic island of Sao Vicente (right) lies across a channel SE of the larger Santo Antao island. The large circular embayment on the left side of the island (in line with the linear airport) is formed by a caldera on the NW coast that is breached by the sea and forms the setting for the port of Mindelo, the island's largest village. Mafic Holocene lavas cover prominent peninsulas on the NE (top) and eastern (upper right) sides bracketing the smooth-shored bay.
