SfondoPlio-Pleistocene volcanic rocks ranging from 3.2 to 0.11 million years old are located in the Logudoro area of NW Sardinia (Beccaluva et al., 1977; Petteruti Lieberknecht et al., 2003; Peccerillo, 2005). Lustrino et al. (2007) gives an age of 2.4 to 0.1 Ma. These volcanics are generally of mafic composition, formed from monogenetic cinder and spatter cones, as well as lava flows (Peccerillo, 2005). Minor pyroclastics are also present. All together, the products of Logudoro cover about 500 km2 (Peccerillo, 2005).
