Meke Golu lake surrounds the Meke Dagi scoria cone in the Karapinar volcanic field, which is comprised of cones, lava fields, and maars on the Konya-Eregli plain. The 300-m-high Meke Dagi is one of the largest cinder cones in Central Anatolia. This maar complex evolved from a hyaloclastite tuff ring to a maar to a scoria cone, reflecting varying lake water levels during the eruption.
