Oku Volcanic Field
The OKU VOLCANIC FIELD or OKU MASSIF is a group of volcanoes based on a swell in the Cameroon Volcanic Line , located in the Oku
Oku
region of the Western High Plateau of Cameroon
Cameroon
. The Mount Oku
Oku
stratovolcano rises to 3,011 m above sea level. The massif has a diameter of almost 100 km and contains four major stratovolcanoes: Mount Oku, Mount Babanki 15 km SW of Oku, Nyos and Nkambe. Rocks in the massif have ages from 24.9 to 22.1 million years ago, but more recent activity has occurred. The massif is composed of rhyolitic and trachytic rock, and contains many maars and basaltic cinder cones . The Oku
Oku
Volcanic Field includes two crater lakes, Lake Nyos to the north and Lake Monoun to the south

Bibcode
The BIBCODE (also known as the REFCODE) is a compact identifier used by several astronomical data systems to uniquely specify literature references. CONTENTS * 1 Adoption * 2 Format * 3 Examples * 4 See also * 5 References ADOPTIONThe Bibliographic Reference Code (refcode) was originally developed to be used in SIMBAD and the NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED), but it became a de facto standard and is now used more widely, for example, by the NASA Astrophysics Data System who coined and prefer the term "bibcode". FORMATThe code has a fixed length of 19 characters and has the form YYYYJJJJJVVVVMPPPPA where YYYY is the four-digit year of the reference and JJJJJ is a code indicating where the reference was published

Foumban Shear Zone
The FOUMBAN SHEAR ZONE, or CENTRAL CAMEROON SHEAR ZONE (CCSZ), is a fault zone in Cameroon
Cameroon
that has been correlated with the Pernambuco fault in northeastern Brazil
Brazil
, which splays from the Trans-Brazilian Lineament . It is part of the Central African Shear Zone (CASZ) and dates to at least 640 million years ago. The zone was rejuvenated several times, usually with a dextral movement, before and during the opening of the South Atlantic in the Cretaceous
Cretaceous
period. The Foumban shear zone is a series of faults associated with major mylonite zones, a segment of the CASZ. The CASZ can be traced from the Sudan
Sudan
to the Adamawa plateau , after which its path is obscured by volcanoes. Based on reconstruction of the configuration of South America before it separated from Africa, the zone can be identified with the Pernambuco fault

Carbon Dioxide
CARBON DIOXIDE (chemical formula CO2) is a colorless gas with a density about 60% higher than that of dry air. Carbon
Carbon
dioxide consists of a carbon atom covalently double bonded to two oxygen atoms. It occurs naturally in Earth\'s atmosphere as a trace gas . The current concentration is about 0.04% (405 ppm ) by volume, having risen from pre-industrial levels of 280 ppm. Natural sources include volcanoes , hot springs and geysers , and it is freed from carbonate rocks by dissolution in water and acids. Because carbon dioxide is soluble in water, it occurs naturally in groundwater , rivers and lakes , ice caps , glaciers and seawater . It is present in deposits of petroleum and natural gas . Carbon
Carbon
dioxide is odorless at normally encountered concentrations, however, at high concentrations, it has a sharp and acidic odor

5°35′N 10°35′E / 5.58°N 10.59°E / 5.58; 10.59 . On August 15, 1984, the lake exploded in a limnic eruption , which resulted in the release of a large amount of carbon dioxide that killed 37 people. At first, the cause of the deaths was a mystery, and causes such as terrorism were suspected. Further investigation and a similar event two years later at Lake

Digital Object Identifier
In computing, a DIGITAL OBJECT IDENTIFIER or DOI is a persistent identifier or handle used to uniquely identify objects, standardized by the International Organization for Standardization
International Organization for Standardization
( ISO
ISO
). An implementation of the Handle System , DOIs are in wide use mainly to identify academic, professional, and government information, such as journal articles, research reports and data sets, and official publications though they also have been used to identify other types of information resources, such as commercial videos. A DOI aims to be "resolvable", usually to some form of access to the information object to which the DOI refers. This is achieved by binding the DOI to metadata about the object, such as a URL , indicating where the object can be found

International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)

Geographic Coordinate System
A GEOGRAPHIC COORDINATE SYSTEM is a coordinate system used in geography that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position , and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position . A common choice of coordinates is latitude , longitude and elevation . To specify a location on a two-dimensional map requires a map projection

Lake Nyos
LAKE NYOS is a crater lake in the Northwest Region of Cameroon
Cameroon
, located about 315 km (196 mi) northwest of Yaoundé . Nyos is a deep lake high on the flank of an inactive volcano in the Oku volcanic plain along the Cameroon
Cameroon
line of volcanic activity. A volcanic dam impounds the lake waters. A pocket of magma lies beneath the lake and leaks carbon dioxide (CO2) into the water, changing it into carbonic acid . Nyos is one of only three known exploding lakes to be saturated with carbon dioxide in this way, the others being Lake
Lake
Monoun , also in Cameroon, and Lake Kivu in Democratic Republic of Congo
Democratic Republic of Congo
. In 1986, possibly as the result of a landslide, Lake

Cinder Cones
A CINDER CONE or SCORIA CONE is a steep conical hill of loose pyroclastic fragments, such as either volcanic clinkers, cinders, volcanic ash, or scoria that has been built around a volcanic vent . They consist of loose pyroclastic debris formed by explosive eruptions or lava fountains from a single, typically cylindrical, vent. As the gas-charged lava is blown violently into the air, it breaks into small fragments that solidify and fall as either cinders, clinkers, or scoria around the vent to form a cone that often is symmetrical; with slopes between 30–40°; and a nearly circular ground plan. Most cinder cones have a bowl-shaped crater at the summit
