Crater at north end of Mono Craters, also known as "North Crater."

Watkins, et al. (2012) studied H2O and CO2 concentration gradients in pyroclastic obsidian from Mono Craters to develop a tool for evaluating degassing models and inferring time scales of magmatic processes. Since the obsidian was taken from a crater said to have erupted in A.D. 1340, it is assumed the sample was made at Panum Crater.

Elevation: 7037ft, 2145m.
