An aerial view from the NW provides an overview of three lake-filled maars, the Gemunden maar in the foreground, and the Weinfeld and Schalkenmehren maars at the left center. Explosive eruptions through nonvolcanic bedrock during the late Pleistocene formed craters with low rims of volcanic ejecta. The West Eifel volcanic field of western Germany contains about 240 scoria cones and maars.
