Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-12387

The roughly 6,000 km2 Harrat Kishb volcanic field is shown in this November 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 180 km across). The field is comprised of scoria cones, tuff rings, maars, lava domes, and flows. Along the western edge of the lower black lava flow field is the Al Wahbah maar, one of the largest in the Arabian Peninsula at 2.3 km wide. Satellite image courtesy of Planet Labs, 2019.
