  1. ^ [1], In this Google Map image, The volcano Shahba located at the South-East of the lava field, and the lava field seems to began from here. Shahba volcano elevation is 1000+ meters and the unnamed lava field average elevation is 700+ meters (from Google Earth) . This give rise to a hypothesis that this "Unnamed" lava field is originating from Shahba volcano. Moreover, The "Unnamed" lava field is basaltic, thus low in viscosity and can cover vast areas, far from its source.
