Volcano list

Bazman

(estratovolcán 3490 m / 11,450 ft)
Bazman volcano is a stratovolcano in SE Iran, 180 km SSW of the city of Zahedan. The volcano has a well-preserved 500 m wide summit crater with minor fumaroles, which suggest it could be still active. [màs]

Bijar Volcanic Field

(Pyroclastic cone(s) unknown)
[màs]

Damavand

(estratovolcán 5670 m / 18,602 ft)
Conical snow-capped Damavand volcano is the highest volcano in the Middle East. It towers dramatically 70 km to the NE above Iran's capital city of Tehran. Activity at the 5670-m-high stratovolcano has been dominated by lava effusion. Young lava flows erupted from the summit vent blanket the western side of the volcano, and the youngest dated lava flows were erupted about 7000 years ago.

Reports of activity in 1902 and 1993 are uncertain. [màs]

unnamed

(campo volcánico unknown summit elevation)

unnamed

(campo volcánico unknown summit elevation)
An unnamed volcanic field is located between Taftan and Bazman citied in SE Iran. It contains very young-looking basaltic lava flows erupted from perfectly preserved cones, located in an area of eroded Cretaceous limestone peaks. [màs]
