Background:

Activity at the East Eifel volcanic field began about 0.65-0.45 million years ago (Ma) with the formation of scoria cones, lava flows and tephra deposits. The Reiden volcanic complex at the western end produced a series of scoria cones, lava flows and lava domes from 0.45 to 0.35 Ma. Activity resumed around 0.215 Ma, continuing until 0.115 Ma, with the formation of scoria cones, maars and lava flows. The latest eruption, at the Laacher See maar, took place about 12,900 years ago (40Argon/39Argon age) and produced about 20 km3 of tephra (Schmincke et al., 2002).
