Taal Volcano Island, Batangas

Taal Volcano was proclaimed as a protected area under the category of protected landscape through Presidential Proclamantion No. 906 dated October 6, 1996, approximately with an area of 62, 292 hectares.

The forty seven (47) identified cones and craters which constitute the Volcano Island were formed by different types of volcanic processes: base surges (rapidly moving mixtures of volcanic debris and steam) ashfalls and effusions of lava. Twenty six (26) of these cones are tuff cones, five are cinder cones and four are maars (shallow to deep circular depressions of volcanic origin).

The most significant deposits in Volcano Island are the products of base surges, which are most extensive in the southwest portion. Other deposits in the island are mostly layered pyroplastic materials: volcanic blocks, cinders, lapilli ans ashes. Pre-historic lava flows are found in Calauit, Binitiang Malaki, Pira-Piraso, Tuoran, Looc and along the inner walls of the Main Crater. Historic lava flows were emplaced during the 1968 and 1969 eruptions.

Taal Volcano is one of the lowest active volcanoes in the world.
