Photo Gallery

This small Aïr basaltic cinder cone and blocky lava flow is part of the Todra volcanic field, which covers a broad area of about 1050 sq km in the Tuareg shield in the southern Aïr region of Niger. Construction of about 30 trachytic and phonolitic volcanoes was followed by the formation of about 130 basaltic cones. The date of the latest eruption of the Todra volcanic field is not known, but may have been as recent as a few centuries ago.
