Photo Gallery

The Ulug-Arginsky cinder cone, seen here from the north in the sunlight at left-center, is part of the Azas Plateau volcanic field west of the SW tip of Lake Baikal. The cone is dotted with large granitic erratics, and lava flows from the cone are glacially eroded and overlain by moraines. The Azas Plateau volcanic field, also known as the East Tuva volcanic field, covers an area of about 1500 sq km. Some basaltic lava flows in broad glacially carved valleys are unglaciated and of probable Holocene age.
