The 8 x 16 km Suoh depression appears to be primarily of tectonic origin, but contains historically active maars and silicic lava domes along its margins.


Numerous hot springs occur along faults within the depression, which contains the Pematang Bata fumarole field. Large phreatic explosions (0.2 cu km tephra) occurred at the time of a major tectonic earthquake in 1933.
Very minor hydrothermal explosions produced two 5-m-wide craters 2 weeks after an earthquake (Magnitude 7.2) on the 15th of February 1994.
