Geological Summary

Haut Dong Nai volcanic field, also known as the Djiring Plateau volcanic field, is an extensive lava field in south-central Vietnam NE of Ho Chi Minh city (Saigon). The 70 x 150 km volcanic field contains both extensively eroded and well-preserved features, with the younger landforms located to the east. Haut Dong Nai was considered to be late-Pleistocene or possibly Holocene in age (Whitford-Stark 1987, pers. comm.).

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Haut Dong Nai. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Haut Dong Nai 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.
