Malintang is a 1983-m-high forested stratovolcano with a caldera breached to the south. A 900 x 1500 m lake lies against the back caldera wall. The flanks of Sorikmalintang are relatively pristine and uneroded, and it most likely has had significant eruptions within the past few thousand years (Kieh, 2009 pers. comm.). The horseshoe-shaped caldera of the andesitic-to-dacitic volcano may be related to emplacement of a large debris avalanche.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Malintang. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Malintang 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 Malintang.
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.
