Background:

The Es Safa volcanic field, in southern Syria SE of the capital city of Damascas (Dimashq), consists of a lava field with broad areas containing Holocene volcanic vents. The basaltic field (also referred to as As Safa) contains numerous vents erupted from NW-SE-trending fissures. A boiling lava lake was reported in the Es Safa volcanic area in the middle of the 19th century. This volcanic field lies within the northern part of the massive alkaline Harrat Ash Shaam volcanic field that extends from southern Syria through NE Jordan to Saudi Arabia.
