Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-12496

The 70 km2 Diamond Craters volcanic field in Oregon, USA, is shown in this October 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 15 km across). The area was uplifted to produce graben structures cross-cutting the lavas in NW-SE direction. Numerous smaller vents including spatter and phreatomagmatic craters, and cones occur along the margins of the uplifted area aligned with the structural trend.
