Tarso Toussidé is a nested caldera system in the Tibesti massif in Chad, seen in this November 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 44 km across). Trou au Natron is the caldera along the SE boundary, the crater to the NNE is Petit Trou/Doon Kidimi. The long, narrow lava flow to the NW is one of the more recent eruptive products.
