The Global Volcanism Program has no activity reports for SW Usangu Basin.
The Global Volcanism Program has no Weekly Reports available for SW Usangu Basin.
The Global Volcanism Program has no Bulletin Reports available for SW Usangu Basin.
A group of late-Pleistocene to Holocene phonolitic lava domes is located at the SW end of the Usangu Basin, NE of the Poroto Mountains. Vents of the SW Usangu Basin volcanic field are located along NNE-trending normal faults (Ebinger et al., 1989).
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from SW Usangu Basin. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the SW Usangu Basin 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.
|Feature Name||Feature Type||Elevation||Latitude||Longitude|

The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for SW Usangu Basin.
The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
