The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Azas Plateau. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Azas Plateau 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.

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.
