The Kars Plateau is a broad calc-alkaline to alkaline volcanic field of largely Pliocene to mid-Pleistocene age in the NE corner of Turkey (Innocenti et al., 1982; Yilmaz, 1990).

Background:

Hantke (1962) reported that historical eruptions have occurred, but Keller (1980, pers. comm.) considered the reports to be uncertain. Feraud (1992, pers. comm.) considered the youngest activity to be Holocene in age.
