Girekol Tepe, a Pleistocene-to-Holocene, calc-alkaline to alkaline shield volcano, is located directly north of the NE arm of Lake Van and NE of the city of Ercis in eastern Anatolia (Yilmaz, 1990). Work by Lebedev at al. (2009) found no volcanic products younger than 0.36 +/- 0.06 Ma associated with Girekol.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Girekol. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Girekol page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.
|Feature Name||Feature Type||Elevation||Latitude||Longitude|
|Girekol Tepe||Shield volcano||2778 m||39° 11' 31" N||43° 13' 1" E|
The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Girekol.
The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
