Bazmam stratovolcano, Iran
Bazman (Kuh-e Bazman) is a 3490-m-high stratovolcano in a remote and arid region in SE Iran.
A well-preserved, 500-m-wide crater caps the summit of the dominantly andesitic volcano.
Its satellitic lava cones have been the source of fresh-looking viscous lava flows of olivine basaltic composition, including the prominent one with dramatic flow levees at the lower left..
A steep-sided lava cone on the north flank produced a viscous lava flow that traveled to the north before diverging to the NW and NE.
No historical eruptions are known from Bazman, but minor fumarolic activity has been reported.
