The Vitim volcanic field covers an area of around 4,500 km2. A smaller area approximately 34 km across that contains several craters is shown in this August 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top). The field is located about 200 km east of northern Lake Baikal, along the Vitim River. The majority of the eruption centers are in the NW portion of the field.
