Bazman is a 3490-m-high stratovolcano in a remote 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. 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.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Bazman. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Bazman 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.

|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 volcano. Its satellitic lava domes have been the source of fresh-looking viscous lava flows, including the prominent one with dramatic flow levees at the lower left. No historical eruptions are known from Bazman, but minor fumarolic activity has been reported.

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.
