The Harra es-Sawâd (or Shuqra) volcanic field in southern Yemen extends for nearly 100 km along the Gulf of Aden, east of the city of Shuqra (Shaqra). The volcanic field is oriented WSW-ENE and contains about a hundred cones that have produced a 40 x 95 km lava field that blankets faulted basement limestones. Most of the volcanic field is Holocene in age (Cox et al., 1977), and in many cases the flows and cones are essentially uneroded. Although eruptions may have occurred in historical time, the only recorded event was a major, but poorly documented eruption in 1253 CE.
