Photo Gallery


A large group of maars, lava domes, basaltic lava flows, and pyroclastic cones occupies the Acigöl-Nevsehir caldera in central Turkey in this NASA Landsat mosaic (with north to the top). The elliptical 7 x 8 km wide late-Pleistocene caldera, whose rim is not apparent in this image, is traversed by the national highway between the towns of Acigöl and Nevsehir (top-right, just right of the mosaic join line).
