The Vakak Group (also spelled Wakak) consists of 18 dacitic and trachytic volcanoes located WSW of Kabul. It is the northernmost of a group of small volcanic fields in the Ghanzi region and consists of endogenous lava domes, one of which occupies an old caldera. The age of the volcanoes is not known precisely; they were tentatively considered to be of Pleistocene age (Lapparent et al., 1965) and were listed as Recent by Bordet (International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior, 1973).
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Vakak Group. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Vakak Group page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.
The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Vakak Group.
The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
