Image Caption: The city of Manila (1) lies just north of the most active vol-
canoes on the Philippines. Taal (2) last erupted in 1977, but had
been very active during the 10 years prior. The volcano sits in
a lake which is in the middle of a very large volcanic caldera.
Laguna de Bay (3), the large 3-lobed lake to the northeast of
Taal, is also a volcanic caldera. Its shallow, brackish waters
maintain a large fishing industry. The linear structures in the
lake are fishing traps. The rest of this area supports a variety
of agriculture. (61A-37-89)
