Background

Harra of Bal Haf volcanic field is located at the southern end of the Balhaf graben. The volcanic field contains cinder cones, tuff cones and large aa lava flows. Lava flows from vents at the cinder cones cover much of the coastal flats and form the irregular shorelline.
The At-Tabâb tuff cone rises from the shoreline and forms the highest point of the volcanic field. It contains a large, 1.5 wide crater, inside which a cinder cone and associated lava flows are located. Another tuff cone to the east contains a lake.
