The low Sukadana Plateau, 30 x 11 km wide, is a volcanic expression of the Sukadana Basalts of Pleistocene age (Barber et al., 2005). The plateau itself covers an area of approximately 1000 km2 and contains fissure-fed lava flows 2-3 m thick issued from NW-SE trending fissures (Barber et al., 2005; van Bemmelen 1949b). The basaltic region may be over 200 m thick in areas, localized around eruptive centers, but no deposits greater than 10 m have been observed. Some columnar jointing is present. K-Ar dating gave ages ranging from 0.44 Ma to 1.15 Ma for the oldest samples (Soeria-Atmadja et al., 1985 in Barber et al., 2005), but more recent ages measured from more well-preserved flows and spatter cones are around 0.01 to 0.8 million years. Sukadana is technically part of the back-arc region of the Sumatra Volcanic Arc Segment, evidenced by notable textural and compositional differences from the arc volcanics, as well as a similarity to the back-arc Bukit Telor basalts (Barber et al., 2005).

Stop Russia's Agression - Support Ukraine
Significant parts of this website use brilliant open-source software developed by Ukrainians. Russia's unprovoked war has killed tens of thousands, displaced millions, and the beautiful country of Ukraine is being destroyed. We cannot be silent even if the topic of this website has nothing to do with politics.
If you like to support Ukraine from abroad:
Ukrainians recommend the Come Back Alive charity. For other options, see StandWithUkraine.
