The rhyolitic Sunagohara caldera and lava dome, east of Numazawa caldera, was active about 0.29-0.22 million years ago (Nakano et al., 2001-). The Sunagohara-Kubota tephra is made up of pumice fall deposits (ca. 4 km3 in volume) and pyroclastic flow deposits (more than 2 km3 in volume), erupted from Sunagohara caldera at about 0.22Ma.

Latest quakes in Greece
: Greece has a lot of earthquake activity, but most of them occur around the margin of the Aegean microplate. The Cycladic islands are located in its center and therefore seismically comparably quiet.
