Dark-colored lava flows of the Haruj volcanic field are prominent in this Space Shuttle photo of the arid desert of central Libya. The extensive Pliocene-to-Holocene Haruj volcanic field covers a broad 45,000 sq km area and contains very well-preserved scoria cones, lava flows, and explosion craters. The youngest lava flows were considered to be Holocene in age.
