- GLOSSARY OF VOLCANIC TERMS
A type of caldera characterized by an internal structure composed of several individual fault-bounded blocks (Lipman, 1997). Piecemeal calderas may result from non-uniform subsidence of a caldera formed from a single eruption, or may be the result of subsidence following a series of large eruptions (multicyclic; Lipman, 1997; Lipman, 2000, p. 655-656).
