The lower to mid-Pleistocene Tigilsky shield volcano (Ogorodov et al. 1972) appears to have a 2-km-wide crater just SE of the summit. An area on the W flank was previously listed as an Unnamed Holocene basaltic shield volcano. The morphology as observed in satellite imagery suggests that the "shield" is simply an erosional feature along a volcanic ridge of the larger edifice.

Desert, Salt & Volcanoes
: One of our best volcano expeditions! Stay 3 full days / nights at the active lava lake of Erta Ale, explore the wonders of Dallol and the Danakil desert in northern Ethiopia. 14 days expedition during Nov-March, small groups, guided by geologist.
Eruption from close
: On 17 Oct, explosions were particularly violent at Anak Krakatau. We show a series of images of a spectacular explosion captured from close range by boat.
Glossary of geologic terms
: A growing list of often illustrated explanations and definitions of geological terms and keywords, with focus on volcanology and seismology.
Divergent plate boundaries in oceans
: Two ocean plates move apart from each other. Hot upwelling mantle material forms magmas that continuously produce new oceanic crust. An ocean widens.
