Background:

The Four Craters Lava Field is the SE-most of a group of three basaltic lava fields SE of Newberry volcano in the High Lava Plains of central Oregon. The Four Craters Lava Field originated from four pyroclastic cones that were constructed along a roughly 4-km-long NW-SE-trending line. The NW-most and highest cone has a well-preserved crater rim. The other cones are breached to the west, SW, and south, respectively. Multiple surface exposure dates place the emplacement of the Four Craters lava field at about 13 ka (Mackey et al., 2012).
