Bazman volcano is part of the Makran arc in SE Iran, shown here in this October 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 44 km across). Scoria cones and lava flows have formed across the eroded flanks, with several darker lava flows containing levees and lobate flow fronts visible on the northern flank. The Bazman granitoid complex forms part of the southern flank and formed between 83 and 72 million years ago. Satellite image courtesy of Planet Labs, 2019.
