The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Kula. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Kula page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

Photo Gallery


Kara Divlit Tepe ("Black Ink Cone") is part of the Kula volcanic field, the westernmost area of young volcanism in Turkey. Kara Divlit Tepe cinder cone is the youngest of the broad Quaternary volcanic field, which is mostly Pleistocene in age. The 300-m-high cone produced a voluminous lava flow, visible to the north to the right of the cone, that traveled 22 km to the NW and is one of the two youngest flows at Kula. The Kula volcanic field contains a group of cinder cones and maars erupted along a roughly E-W-trending line.
