Balatukan (also known as Balingoan or Balatocan) is a massive compound stratovolcano that rises above the SW shore of Gingoog Bay in north-central Mindanao, opposite Camiguin Island. Lava flows on its flanks have Pleistocene ages. Although the volcano currently displays fumarolic activity, it is extensively eroded and the age of its latest eruption is not known.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Balatukan. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Balatukan 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.
