Malabar Volcano (West-Java, Indonesia)

The broad, forested, Gunung Malabar stratovolcano is located immediately south of the city of Bandung in western Java. While it was previously thought to be of possible Holocene age (Bronto 1995, pers. comm.), K-Ar dates of 0.23 Ma were reported by Bogie and Mackenzie (1997). Additionally, Malabar material was overlain by other Pleistocene deposits from the Wayang-Windu domes a few kilometers south. A geothermal energy project is present on the S flank closest to Wayang-Windu, but no active geothermal features have been reported.
