The 1,500 km2 Manzaz Volcanic Field within the Hoggar volcanic province of Algeria contains numerous generall monogenetic cones, maars, and lava flows, seen here in this 15 November 2019 Sentinel-2 satellite image (N at the top). Many scoria cones produced lava flows through the side as a flank collapsed, leaving a horseshoe-shaped edifice. Satellite image courtesy of Sentinel Hub Playground, 2019.
