Scientists have named this type of volcano "anemone" because of its petallike lava flows and radiating radar-bright patterns. They normally occur in association with fissure type erruptions. This volcano is 40 by 60 kilometers (25 by 37 miles) in size and has a dark central edifice with bright central flows. It has elongated summit pits and an arcuate graben along the southern summit [ Head et al., 1992].
