Details for: Mono-Inyo Craters
The Mono Craters volcanic field, between Mono Lake in the foreground and Long Valley caldera at the upper left, is a 17-km-long chain of rhyolitic lava domes and thick, viscous lava flows. Mono Craters have been frequently active during the Holocene. Panum crater (the vent nearest to Mono Lake), is partially filled by a lava dome and was the site of the latest eruption from Mono Craters, about 600 years ago. Photo by R. Von Huene, 1971 (U.S. Geological Survey).

Location: North Coulee (View Details at MaGa DB)
Description: North Coulee is a prominent feature near the north end of the Mono Craters chain. The coulee is a glassy rhyolite flowthat is partially blanketed by tephra deposits emplaced during the latter part of the North Mono eruption in the mid-14th century CE.
