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 Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Cerro Singüil. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Cerro Singüil page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
There is no Deformation History data available for Cerro Singüil.
There is no Emissions History data available for Cerro Singüil.
|Bedded scoria deposits forming the flanks of a basaltic cinder cone are exposed in a quarry at Cerro Singüil. This cone is the largest of a small cluster of cones in El Salvador's interior valley SE of Volcán Chingo. These cones are part of a broad area of monogenetic basaltic volcanism near the Guatemalan border on the opposite side of the main volcanic front from the Middle-American trench.

|Cerro Singüil (also known as El Cerrón) is a large youthful-looking scoria cone with a well-preserved crater that lies at the eastern end of a large volcanic field in the interior valley of El Salvador near the Guatemalan border, SE of Volcán Chingo. Cerro Singüil is seen here from the SE along the Pan-American highway, which skirts the eastern flank of the cone.

|The flat-topped summit of Cerro las Tablas is cut by one of a chain of three N-S-trending explosion craters located west of Cerro Singüil in the interior valley of El Salvador. Cerro las Tablas at 1035 m is the highest peak of the Cerro Singüil volcanic field and is seen here from the west.

|Cerro Singüil is a morphologically youthful cone that is nevertheless old enough for a series of radially oriented erosional gullies to have formed on its flanks. The 957-m-high cone rises 250 m above the floor of El Salvador's interior valley and is seen here from the NW, along the Pan-American highway.

There are no samples for Cerro Singüil in the Smithsonian's NMNH Department of Mineral Sciences Rock and Ore collection.
|DECADE Data||The DECADE portal, still in the developmental stage, serves as an example of the proposed interoperability between The Smithsonian Institution's Global Volcanism Program, the MAGA Database, and the EarthChem Geochemical Portal. The Deep Earth Carbon Degassing (DECADE) initiative seeks to use new and established technologies to determine accurate global fluxes of volcanic CO2 to the atmosphere, but installing CO2 monitoring networks on 20 of the world's 150 most actively degassing volcanoes. The group uses related laboratory-based studies (direct gas sampling and analysis, melt inclusions) to provide new data for direct degassing of deep earth carbon to the atmosphere.|

|WOVOdat is a database of volcanic unrest; instrumentally and visually recorded changes in seismicity, ground deformation, gas emission, and other parameters from their normal baselines. It is sponsored by the World Organization of Volcano Observatories (WOVO) and presently hosted at the Earth Observatory of Singapore.|
|Large Eruptions of Cerro Singüil||Information about large Quaternary eruptions (VEI >= 4) is cataloged in the Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions (LaMEVE) database of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).|
|MIROVA||Middle InfraRed Observation of Volcanic Activity (MIROVA) is a near real time volcanic hot-spot detection system based on the analysis of MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) data. In particular, MIROVA uses the Middle InfraRed Radiation (MIR), measured over target volcanoes, in order to detect, locate and measure the heat radiation sourced from volcanic activity.|
|MODVOLC Thermal Alerts||Using infrared satellite Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data, scientists at the Hawai'i Institute of Geophysics and Planetology, University of Hawai'i, developed an automated system called MODVOLC to map thermal hot-spots in near real time. For each MODIS image, the algorithm automatically scans each 1 km pixel within it to check for high-temperature hot-spots. When one is found the date, time, location, and intensity are recorded. MODIS looks at every square km of the Earth every 48 hours, once during the day and once during the night, and the presence of two MODIS sensors in space allows at least four hot-spot observations every two days. Each day updated global maps are compiled to display the locations of all hot spots detected in the previous 24 hours. There is a drop-down list with volcano names which allow users to 'zoom-in' and examine the distribution of hot-spots at a variety of spatial scales.|
|EarthChem||EarthChem develops and maintains databases, software, and services that support the preservation, discovery, access and analysis of geochemical data, and facilitate their integration with the broad array of other available earth science parameters. EarthChem is operated by a joint team of disciplinary scientists, data scientists, data managers and information technology developers who are part of the NSF-funded data facility Integrated Earth Data Applications (IEDA). IEDA is a collaborative effort of EarthChem and the Marine Geoscience Data System (MGDS).|
