Background:

The Ngaoundere volcanic field is located within a larger late-Miocene region of plateau basalts, plug domes and a single large basanitic-to-trachytic stratovolcano, Nganha. Quaternary volcanism is situated east of Ngaoundere and Wakwa, and consists of scoria cones and lava flows, maars, and tuff cones. A single Potassium-Argon date of 0.9 million years ago has been obtained from a lava flow east of Wakwa, although some volcanoes are possibly of Holocene age (Vincent 1992, pers. comm.). The most recent eruptive activity originated from a chain of cinder cones aligned in a WNW-ESE direction.
