Mount Ararat eruption
Mount Ararat is a snow-capped dormant volcanic cone in Turkey. It has two peaks: Greater Ararat (the highest peak in Turkey and the entire Armenian plateau with an elevation of 5137 m or 16854 ft) and Lesser Ararat (with an elevation of 3896 m or 12782 ft).The Ararat massif is about 40 km (25 mi) in diameter. The Iran-Turkey boundary skirts east of Lesser Ararat the lower peak of the Ararat massif. It was in this area that by the Tehran Convention of 1932 a border change was made in Turkeys favour allowing it to occupy the eastern flank of Lesser Ararat.
