Background

The Labo stratovolcano has erupted many andesitic-to-dacitic flank lava domes. Its earliest eruptions date back 580,000 years ago and constructed lava domes on the northern side of the complex. The present stratovolcano started to be built about 270,000 years ago. The latest known activity occurred 27,000 years ago and produced pyroclastic flows from the summit vent.

The Cosmic Ray Research Station at the end of the road up to the summit plateau of Mount Aragats, at 3200 m altitude. The site was constructed in 1943 as a branch of the A.I. Alikhanyan National Science Laboratory in Yerevan. Its purpose was  research into chemical and physical reactions between cosmic rays and the atmosphere, among others. While it hosted a large complex of buildings and laboratories for up to 100 researchers working here at its heyday, it was gradually abandoned after the collapse of the Soviet Union and is now only occasionally being used, but mostly left to the elements as a ghost research station...
