Two volcanic centers near Takab noted by Boccaletti (1976-77) may be the same features identified in IAVCEI (1973) to the SE of Sahand volcano, though located about a degree of latitude further south. The northern-most feature, Kuh-e Ayyub Ansar, appears to be a dome (about 3 x 5 km) in satellite imagery. A second hill about 20 km ESE may be a resistant outcrop of a lava flow, a situation seen in other parts of Iran.
