The massive stratovolcano of Mount Natib, at the northern end of the Bataan Peninsula, is truncated by a 6 x 7 km caldera. The latest dated eruptive products are 69,000 +/- 27,000 years old (Ebasco Services 1977), but sampling is not in sufficient detail to determine the date of the latest eruptions. Ruaya and Panem (1991) listed the age of the dominantly andesitic volcano as late Pliocene to Pleistocene, but gave a probable age of the latest activity as Holocene to upper Pleistocene. Five thermal areas are present in the summit region.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Natib. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Natib 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 summit of Mount Natib, a large stratovolcano south of Pinatubo volcano, is cut by a 6 x 7 km caldera. This view from the NE caldera rim looks across the caldera to its open side. Five thermal areas are found in the summit region.

Mount Natib is a massive stratovolcano at the northern end of the Bataan Peninsula, south of Pinatubo volcano. The summit of the volcano, seen here from the WNW, is truncated by a 6 x 7 km caldera. The age of the latest eruption is not known, but is considered to be late Pleistocene or Holocene. Five thermal areas are found in the summit region.

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.
