Background:

The Pleistocene Mangakino volcanic center has been the source of large-volume rhyolite ignimbrites erupted between 1.6 and 0.9 million years ago (Ma) (Wilson et al., 1984; Houghton et al., 1995). Two principal periods of activity occurred, from 1.6 to 1.53 Ma and 1.21 to 0.9 Ma (Wilson et al., 1995a). One of the largest ignimbrite eruptions of the Taupo volcanic zone took place at 1.21 Ma from Mangakino. The Titiraupenga and Pureora andesitic lava domes lie just to the south of the inferred caldera margin.
