Table 3 The comparative analysis of geological features between AMVF and other existing volcanic Global Geoparks

From: International geological significance of the potential Al-Medina volcanic UNESCO Global Geopark Project in Saudi Arabia revealed from multi-satellite remote sensing data

Volcanic geoparks Tectonics Landscape Lithological characteristics
AMVF The extension of the Rea Sea caused by the continental collision between the Arabian and Eurasian plates Multi-stages lava flows with sparse vegetation Basalt with rare white volcanos
Unzen volcanic area UGGP The collision between oceanic and continental plates Lava flows with sparse vegetation Basalt
Wudalianchi UGGP The deep subduction and dehydration of the west Pacific stagnant slab Multi-stages lava flows with vegetation Basalt
Leiqiong UGGP The deep subduction and dehydration of the west Pacific stagnant slab Multi-stages lava flows with vegetation Basalt
