Kargapazari Dagi, located just north of the town of Pasinler and 35 km ENE of Erzurum (Ercan et al., 1993), was dated by Innocenti et al. (1982) around 8 Ma. However, Yilmaz (1990) identifies the area as Pliocene to Pleistocene based on dating by Nagao et al. (1989). Satellite imagery appears to show a half-caldera open to the NW with a dome in the center.
