Background:

The Ankaizina volcanic field, covering portions of the Tsaratanana and Ambondrona massifs in northern Madagascar, was active until the very recent Quaternary. An initial dominantly silicic phase included pyroclastic-flow formation and was accompanied by the emission of minor basaltic lava flows. An earlier now-eroded basaltic phase was followed by the most recent activity, which produced a series of perfectly preserved cinder cones and lava flows that traveled down current valley floors in the Bealanana region.
