Details for: Taranaki
Symmetrical Taranaki (Egmont) volcano dominates the western coast of New Zealand's North Island. The 2518-m stratovolcano, seen here from the south, is surrounded by a ring plain of debris avalanche and lahar deposits produced by repetitive collapse of the volcanic edifice. Taranaki (Egmont) has been active throughout the Holocene. The latest eruption of Taranaki took place in 1854 CE. Photo by Jim Cole (University of Canterbury).
