The Nuomin volcanic field, identified as Shatu in Ogara (1969) and Whiford-Stark (1987), is dominated by monogenetic cones and lava flows that cover about 600 km2 (Zhao and others, 2014). K-Ar dating by Fan and others (2012, cited in Zhao and others, 2014) indicated eruptions between 2.3 and 0.13 Ma. The most recent activity was at the Sifang Mountin, which is the southern-most cone of the group and contains a small lake in the summit crater.
