The 480 km2 Bayuda Volcanic Field in Sudan contains around 70 small volcanic centers including at least 53 scoria cones and 15 maar craters, shown in this November 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 46 km across). The field was partly constructed over Precambrian and Paleozoic granite, which form darker areas to the SE.
