Gunung Karang volcano in westernmost Java was constructed SE of the 15-km-wide Pleistocene Danau caldera. Two craters, Kawah Welirang and Kawah Haji, display fumarolic activity and are found on the eastern flanks of 1778-m-high Karang volcano, which may be of Holocene age (Bronto 1995, pers. comm.). The forested andesitic and basaltic volcano is the highest of a group of stratovolcanoes in the Danau caldera area and lies across a low saddle from Pulosari volcano.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Karang. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Karang 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 large circular, forested volcano below and to the left of the center of this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the upper right) is Karang volcano. Karang was constructed to the SE of the 15-km-wide Pleistocene Danau caldera, whose northern and eastern rims and light-colored floor are seen above the center of the image. Two craters lie on the SE flank of 1778-m-high Karang volcano, the highest peak in this volcanic region at the western tip of Java. The Pujut Peninsula lies at the upper right.

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.
