Sekincau volcano was constructed near the southern rim of the small NW-SE-trending double Belirang and Balak calderas, 2 and 2.5 km wide, respectively. The 300-m-wide crater of Sekincau is open to the south. The age of the latest eruptive activity is not known, although fumarolic activity occurs on the caldera floor and on the eastern and SE outer flanks of Balak caldera.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Sekincau Belirang. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Sekincau Belirang 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.
