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.

Eruptive History

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).

Deformation History

There is data available for 1 deformation periods. Expand each entry for additional details.


Deformation during 2003 Mar 19 - 2006 Mar 08 [Variable (uplift / subsidence); Observed by InSAR]

Start Date: 2003 Mar 19 Stop Date: 2006 Mar 08 Direction: Variable (uplift / subsidence) Method: InSAR
Magnitude: Unknown Spatial Extent: Unknown Latitude: Unknown Longitude: Unknown

Remarks: PS-InSAR shows aseismic movement across the Lubao Fault, near Mount Natib, but no volcanic deformation.

Figure (see Caption)

Persistent scatterer interferometery of the NW flank of Mount Natib and the Lubao Fault. A notable change in line-of-sight (LOS) of the radar signal occurs at the boundary of the fault indicating differential movement of the western block relative to the eastern block. Transect A ? A0 shows the most abrupt change in LOS across the Lubao Fault. The Y-axis corresponds to the change in LOS from March 2003 to March 2006. The centre of the X-axis in the cross-section is the approximate location of the Lubao Fault trace.

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.
