TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation
A large young lava field which probably has been active within the past 10,000 years is located in the far NW corner of Iran, near the border with Azerbaijan, about 40 km east of the Iranian city of Maku.

Background:

The volcanic field lies between two major NW-SE-trending fault systems, the Maku Fault on the south and the Sardarapat-Nakhichevan Fault on the north. The roughly crescent-shaped lava field extends about 30 km in an east-west direction and about 25 km in a NW-SE direction.
