Doma Peaks is an andesitic stratovolcano located at the western end of a volcanic chain in the highlands of New Guinea.
The volcano has 2 westward facing escarpments which are probably the result of landslides.
It has a main cater breached towards the west by the Arua River, flank vents southwest of the summit, and a lava field on the northeastern flank.
The age of the last eruption is unknown. At present, there is geothermal activity at the headwaters of the Arua and Tebi Rivers.
Introduction to Plate Tectonics: The Earth's upper, rigid layer is broken into several plates which are in constant motion to one another. Most earthquakes and volcanoes occur as result of these plate boundaries.
