BackgroundMost vents are located on the NE-striking Dunhua-Mishan fault. One alkali basaltic lava flow traveled 100 km down a canyon NW of the lake. The volcanism of the field is related to an intraplate hot spot, generating melts from the upper mantle. Mantle xenoliths are common in Jingbo volcanic rocks. A period of major activity occurred about 5500-5200 years ago and produced extensive lava flows that covered an area of about 500 sq km.
