The Meidob Volcanic Field covers approximately 5,000 km2 in western Sudan, seen in this November 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 100 km across). Around 700 features have been identified, including scoria cones, maars, tuff rings, and eroded features. Some lava flows reached more than 20 km from their source.
