Taranaki ring plain

Taranaki ring plain

On the Taranaki peninsula, a line of three cone volcanoes (Taranaki, Pouākai, and Kaitake) is surrounded by a huge ring plain of avalanche, lahar, and tephra deposits. The ring plain appears smooth in the digital terrain map and contrasts with the dissected hill country to the east.
