The poorly known Sukaria caldera in central Flores Island, NE of Iya volcano, is 8 km in diameter. A 750-m-high northern caldera wall rises above the village of Sukaria in the center of the caldera. The southern caldera wall is very irregular. A small fumarolic area on the western flank contains several vents that eject geyser-like water columns with a smell of hydrogen sulfide. No historical eruptions are known from the caldera.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Sukaria Caldera. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Sukaria Caldera 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.
|Keli Nabe, one of the peaks on the SE margin of the poorly known Sukaria caldera, is seen here from the Roga Ria valley to its north. A small fumarolic area on the western flank contains several vents that eject geyser-like water columns with a smell of hydrogen sulfide. No historical eruptions are known from Sukaria.

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.
