Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Karapinar Field
Meke Golu lake surrounds the Meke Dagi cinder cone in the Karapinar volcanic field, which is comprised of cinder cones, lava fields, and maars on the Konya-Eregli plain. The 300-m-high Meke Dagi is one of the largest cinder cones in Central Anatolia. This maar complex evolved from a hyaloclastite tuff ring to a maar to a cinder cone, reflecting varying lake water levels during the eruption. "Meke" in Turkish means "smelling" ("Golu" is "Lake"): the water is full of sulfur bubbles from underwater solfataras.
