Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-00457

The youngest-known eruption of Dakataua caldera produced these cones on Mount Makalia, probably during the 1890s. The vent to the right in this image produced a lava flow that is only partly vegetated and descends the E flank of Mount Makalia. The cones are located along a N-S-trending chain of scoria cones and maars across the 12-km-wide caldera lake. Photo by Russell Blong, 1988 (Macquarie University).
