Sibualbuali is an eroded Pleistocene stratovolcano with two solfatara fields on the eastern flank. Rhyolitic-dacitic lava domes erupted from fissure vents along the Toru-Asik fault to the south are late Pleistocene or possibly Holocene in age and are considered part of the Sibualbuali volcanic center (Aspden et al., 1982).

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Sibualbuali. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Sibualbuali 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.

Gunung Sibualbuali, rising above agricultural land on its eastern flank, is an eroded Pleistocene stratovolcano. Two solfatara fields are located on the eastern flank. Rhyolitic-dacitic lava domes erupted from fissure vents along the Toru-Asik fault to the south are late Pleistocene or possibly Holocene in age and are considered part of the Sibualbuali volcanic center.

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.
