Despite overlapping vent sites and crustal source domains between the Oruanui and post-Oruanui eruptions, U–Th zircon model ages in Taupo SG1 rhyolites (erupted from 12 to 10 ka) indicate only minor inheritance of crystals from the Oruanui magma source.
Taupo volcano, comprising several calderas (collapsed volcanoes) makes up the northern part of the lake.
The surrounding lighter-coloured region is the area most thickly covered by the deposits of Taupo eruption 1800 years ago.
