Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-12390
Sahand in NW Iran has heavily eroded flanks, seen in this October 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 150 km across). A caldera formed at the summit which has been largely infilled by more recent activity. Eruptive deposits from Sahand were emplaced over an area of around 3,000 km2 and lava domes and smaller cones have formed across the flanks.
