Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-11100

Small cones and lava domes dot the surface of snow-covered Ghegam Ridge (upper left), located west of Lake Sevan (right) in west-central Armenia. North lies to the upper right in this NASA International Space Station image. The volcanoes and associated lava flows cover a 65-km-long, 35-km-wide area west of Lake Sevan and are concentrated along three NNW-SSE-trending alignments. Lava flows from the central and eastern clusters flowed into Lake Sevan at the upper left-hand side of the lake.
