Parker

Schichtvulkan 1824 m / 5,984 ft
Mindanao (Philippinen), 6.11°N / 124.89°E
Aktueller Status: normal / ruhend (1 von 5)
Last update: 12 Dez 2021 (Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report)

Parker volcano (also known as Falen locally) is a low, but steep-sided vegetated stratovolcano located 30 km west of General Santos City, near the southern tip of Mindanao Island, Philippines.
The andesitic-dacitic volcano contains a 2.9 km diameter summit caldera with a lake, Lake Maughan (2 km diameter).
Parker was recently identified as the source of a major explosive eruption in 1641, which caused devastating pyroclastic flows and lahars, and heavy ash fall and darkness over Mindanao Island. The 1641 eruption was one of 3 large explosions of Parker volcano within the past 3800 years. It created the present-day summit caldera.
The eruption style of Parker volcano is similar to Pinatubo volcano, which had a Plinian eruption in 1991.

2002 earthquake & crater lake landslide
A magnitude 7.5 earthquake occurred near Parker volcano on 6 March 2002 and an eruption alarm was triggered. The quake caused a portion of the volcano's crater wall to breach and fall into Lake Maughan at the top of the volcano. The landslide caused a flood from the lake that washed away houses and about 33 families were evacuated from river banks below Lake Maughan.
