Slag volcano with initial maar phase

The Eppelsberg is a north-south eruption crevice on which there were several eruptions.
Plants within the tephra sequences show that the eruptions were interrupted by periods of rest. Part of the old crater wall slid back into the chimney during volcanic activity.
This step-like landslide can still be seen today, a unique, unmistakable feature of the Eppelsberg volcano. Various eruptions, some with and some without water, form the characteristic "black band" and the colorful layers above.
Last but not least, the light Laacher pumice covered the Eppelsberg.
