Details for: Popa
Mount Popa, in central Myanmar (Burma), is a large, steep-sided composite cone that rises 1150 m above the surrounding plain. Seen here from the town of Popa on the western flank of the volcano, the summit of the volcano forms the back headwall of a large horseshoe-shaped caldera produced by collapse of the edifice. This 1.6-km-wide, 850-m-deep caldera is breached to the NW, in the direction of the ridge on the left horizon. A 3 cu km debris-avalanche deposit covers an area of 27 sq km north of the breach.
