Image Collection | Types and Features | Volcanic Fields

There are 5,901 volcano images available on the GVP website, including 4,164 in these new galleries with updated captions and keywords, and at a larger size.



Volcanic fields, or monogenetic volcanic fields, are systems that produce numerous volcanic features including scoria cones, lava flows, maar craters, stratovolcanoes, and vents. These fields can consist of tens to hundreds of distributed vents, most of them only producing one eruption, and can span up to thousands of square kilometers. Hazards include ashfall, pyroclastic flows and surges, lava flows, ballistic ejecta, lahars, and flooding from dammed drainages. New vents can open anywhere within the field resulting in a widespread area that could be impacted by an eruption.
