Alloway Received: 27 July 2017 / Accepted: 25 May 2018 Springer Science+Business Media B.V., part of Springer Nature 2018 Abstract The two largest islands of the Samoan post-eruptive sedimentology of volcanic calderas and chain, Savai’i and Upolu, possess almost 400 volcanic maars is relatively well-established, that of crater cones. Their craters form enclosed, internally drained lakes remains poorly understood. The volcanic ediﬁce basins that potentially retain long, detailed and of Mount Lanoto ¯ in southeast Upolu was selected for uninterrupted sedimentary sequences. Because of the investigation. The form of the volcano and its crater sparsity, fragmentary nature and low temporal resolu- are typical of those observed across the island. The tion of records of environmental change from the sediments retained in the crater are composed largely tropical Paciﬁc, these deposits have the potential to ﬁll of plant-organic-rich muds that display little visible an important gap in our knowledge of global climatic evidence of stratigraphic variation.
