Background:

Smithsonian / GVP volcano information:
The Hainan Dao volcanic field consists of a group of 58 Pleistocene-Holocene tholeiitic cones that are part of the Qionglei volcano group, also known as the Leiqiong volcanic field. The Hainan Dao volcanic field covers about 4100 sq km of the northern part of Hainan Island (also known as Qiong), across the Qiongzhou strait south of the Leizhou (Liuchow) Peninsula. The Hainan Dao volcano field is of Pleistocene-Holocene age, but historical eruptions were reported in the Lingao and Chengmai areas in the 19th and 20th centuries. Leihuling and Maanshan, two of the best preserved volcanic cones, are oriented along an E-W fracture and are part of a cluster of about 30 cones in the Shishan and Yongzing regions.
