Photo Gallery


The low, but massive Mariveles stratovolcano forms the southern end of the Bataan Peninsula, on the west side of Manila Bay. The morphologically youthful volcano is truncated by a 4-km-wide caldera that drains to the north. A mid-Holocene eruption has been radiocarbon dated at 4000 years before present. The city of Manila at the lower right lies 50 km across the bay from the volcano.
