Karapinar Field
"The basaltic Karapinar volcanic field is comprised of five cinder cones, two lava fields and several explosion craters and maars located on the Konya-Eregli plain SW of the Karacadag stratovolcano. The 300-m-high Meke Dagi is one of the largest cinder cones in Central Anatolia. The explosion craters and maars are located along a SW-NE line consistent with the elongation of Karacadag volcano. The maars evolved from hyaloclastite tuff rings to maars to cinder cones, reflecting varying lake water levels during the eruption."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
