The broad isthmus between Lagonoy Gulf and San Miguel Bay in SE Luzon is occupied by the isolated Mount Isarog volcano. The 1966-m-high andesitic stratovolcano is truncated by a 2.5-km-wide crater that is breached to the east along a narrow valley drained by the Quinarag River. A major debris avalanche deposit extends northwest to the coast and into San Miguel Bay. Pyroclastic flows originating from lava dome collapses have occurred during the Holocene, one of which has a calibrated radiocarbon date of about 5500 years Before Present. Currently the Maalsom vent displays gas seepages, warm springs, and steaming vents.

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.

|Mount Isarog volcano in the background rises to 1966 m NW beyond the lower flanks of Iriga volcano, which form the sloping terrain in the foreground. Mount Isarog is an isolated stratovolcano occupying the broad isthmus between Lagonoy Gulf and San Miguel Bay. The summit of the volcano is cut by a large crater, which has a prominent, deep and narrow breach on the lower eastern flank.

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.
