Caption: Volcanic craters, Lanzarote. Aerial photograph of volcanic craters that lie along a fissure zone on Lanzarote, Canary Islands. These craters are called the Montanas del Fuego ('mountains of fire'). A fissure zone is a line of weakness in the Earth's crust. Magma from deep in the Earth can well up and erupt over the surface. The blackened area surrounding the craters is made up of solidified lava. The Montanas del Fuego were created during a volcanic eruption in 1730 but have since remained dormant.
