Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-12580
Two scoria cones of the Jabal Yar volcanic center in SW Saudi Arabia are sown in this December 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 19 km across). There are three groups of cones and this is the northernmost 'Ukwatain group. Both cones underwent flank collapse or rafting during their eruptions and now open towards the W. Lava flow boundaries are visible on the western side of both cones.
