While making up some 30% of the land area of Libya, the Fezzan supports little of its population. Despite this, large towns like Sabha (Sabha, Libya), survive on near surface water in the wadis of the north and west. The northeast area is dominated by Haruj, a large and unpopulated volcanic

glacial ice covering the Mount Garibaldi area may cause floods, lahars, or debris flows that could possibly threaten small communities such as Brackendale (Brackendale, British Columbia).

North Shore City

name "GVP1" Rangitoto is the most recent and the largest (2311 hectares) of the approximately 50 volcanoes of the Auckland Volcanic Field. It is separated from the mainland of Auckland's North Shore (North Shore City) by the Rangitoto Channel. Since World War II it has been linked by a causeway to the much older

and the increasing political clout of ethnic groups contributes to the city's multicultural vitality. Geography thumb left Rangitoto Island (File:Rangitoto from Achilles Point.jpg) (in the background) from Achilles Point Volcanoes Auckland straddles the Auckland volcanic field, which has produced about 90 volcanic eruptions from 50 volcanoes in the last 90,000 years. It is the only city in the world built on a basaltic volcanic field that is still active. It is estimated that the field will stay active for about 1 million years. Surface features include cones, lakes, lagoons, islands and depressions, and several have produced extensive lava flows. Some of the cones and flows have been partly or completely quarried (quarry) away. The individual volcanoes are all considered extinct, although the volcanic field itself is merely dormant (dormant volcano). The trend is for the latest eruptions to occur in the north west of the field. Auckland has at least 14 large lava tube caves which run from the volcanoes down towards the sea. Some are several kilometres long. A new suburb, Stonefields, has been built in an excavated lava flow, north west of Maungarei Mount Wellington (Maungarei), that was previously used as a quarry by Winstones. Auckland's volcanoes are fuelled entirely by basaltic magma, unlike the explosive subduction-driven volcanism in the central North Island, such as at Mount Ruapehu and Lake Taupo which are of tectonic origin.

Retrieved 30 March 2013. Also published in print as ''Volcanic hazards at the Auckland volcanic field''. 1993. The most recent and by far the largest volcano, Rangitoto Island, was formed within the last 1000 years, and its eruptions destroyed the Māori settlements on neighbouring Motutapu Island some 700 years ago. Rangitoto's size, its symmetry, its position guarding the entrance to Waitemata Harbour and its visibility from many parts of the Auckland region make it Auckland's most iconic natural feature. Few birds and insects inhabit the island because of the rich acidic soil and the type of flora growing out of the rocky soil. thumb right Auckland and the inner Hauraki Gulf (File:Auckland20061016222837.jpg) from space Harbours, gulf and rivers Auckland lies on and around an isthmus, less than two kilometres wide at its narrowest point, between Mangere Inlet and the Tamaki River. There are two harbours in the Auckland urban area surrounding this isthmus: Waitemata Harbour to the north, which opens east to the Hauraki Gulf, and Manukau Harbour to the south, which opens west to the Tasman Sea. The total coastline of Auckland is 3,702 km in length. Wikipedia:Auckland City commons:Auckland

Golan Heights

Geologically (Geology), the Golan plateau and the Hauran plain to the east constitute a Holocene volcanic field that also extends northeast almost to Damascus. Much of the area is scattered with dormant volcanos, as well as cinder cones (volcanic cones#Cinder cone), such as Majdal Shams. The plateau also contains a crater lake, called Birkat Ram ("Ram Pool"), which is fed by both surface runoff and underground springs. These volcanic areas
