To the east of Salazie, a fourth cirque, the Marsouins Cirque, has been partially filled by lava and pyroclastite flows (Rocher and Westercamp 1989) giving rise to the present Bébour-Bélouve Plain (Fig. 4). The internal structure of Piton des Neiges volcano has been studied with gravity, magnetic and resistivity methods as well as by a 2108 m-deep drill hole (Demange et al. 1989; Gailler and Lénat 2012; Malengreau et al. 1999). The main feature of the interior of the volcano is the presence of a huge intrusive complex which creates a large positive gravity anomaly (Fig.

Unlike for most oceanic volcanoes, the lithosphere beneath La Réunion exhibits, no, or very weak, flexure. A large body of underplated material has been identified beneath the southwestern part of the island. Two volcano edifices currently compose the island: Piton des Neiges to the NW and Piton de la Fournaise to the SE.
