The Nemrut stratovolcano, with its well defined summit caldera, is the most recent volcanic eruption center (1441 A.D.) in the East Anatolian High Plateau, one of the best examples of an active colllision zone. Widespread volcanism has been active in this region for the last similar to 10 Ma, producing large volumes of lavas and pyroelastics covering a broad belt, across the Bitlis Suture Zone, from the Anatolian plate in the north to the Arabian plate in the south.
