Karasu Rift

(Volcanic field 486 m / 1594 ft)
[more]

Kargapazari Dagi

(Unknown 2089 m / 6854 ft)
[more]

Kars

(stratovolcano ca. 3000 m)
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). [more]

Kenger

(cinder cone 745 m)

Kula

(cinder cones, maars 740 m)
The Kula volcanic field in western Turkey near the city Selendi had the last eruptions probably more than 10.000 years ago. [more]

Nemrut Dagi

(caldera 2948 m)
The summit of Nemrut Dagi is truncated by a 5 x 9 km caldera near Lake Van in eastern Turkey. A lake that partially fills the western side of the caldera is constrained by post-caldera eruptions that produced glassy obsidian lava flows from domes on the eastern caldera floor. A series of scoria cones and lava domes were erupted along N-S-trending fissures on the northern flank. Ash layers in Lake Van document numerous Holocene eruptions from Nemrut Dagi.
