The Global Volcanism Program has no Bulletin Reports available for Kyatwa.
The Kyatwa volcanic field, also known as the Ndale volcanic field, occupies the Western Rift Valley, north of the equator and east of the Ruwenzori Mountains about halfway between Lake Edward and Lake Albert. The Kyatwa tuff cones and lake-filled maars are part of a group of Pleistocene-to-Recent volcanic fields in western Uganda.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Kyatwa. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Kyatwa 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.

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.
