Sikhote-Alin volcano is a vast cluster of basaltic fissure vents in the Sikhote-Alin region of SE Russia near the Sea of Japan, NE of Vladivostok.
Large basalts and basaltic-andesites lava flows cover several 1000 square km.
Basaltic lava fields are present at the Sovgavan Plateau, the Nelma Plateau (also known as the Samarga Plateau) and the Bikin Plateau. Tholeiitic basalts dominate along coastal fields near the Japan Sea, and alkaline fields are found further inland. Most activity dates back to the Miocene and continued into the late Pleistocene, and possibly into the Holocene in the East Sikhote-Alin area.
