There are no Holocene eruptions known for Göllü Dag. If this volcano has had large eruptions prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

The following references are the sources used for data regarding this volcano. References are linked directly to our volcano data file. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title. Additional discussion of data sources can be found under Volcano Data Criteria.

Göllü Dag, a 2143-m-high rhyolitic-to-rhyodacitic lava dome complex in central Anatolia, lies between the Hasan Dagi and Acigöl-Nevsehir volcanic complexes. Fission track ages on obsidians ranged from between 1.33 to 0.84 million years old (Bigazzi et al., 1995). A large number of cinder cones are located adjacent to Göllü Dag, many along N-S-trending fissures north of the lava dome complex and south of the Erdas Dag massif; some of these cones were considered by Keller (1980, pers. comm.) to be Holocene in age due to their freshly preserved features. The lava domes and cinder cones overlie the buried silicic Derinkuyu caldera complex of Tertiary age; hydrothermal alteration and hot springs are present in the Sahin Kalesi resurgent dome complex west of Göllü Dag and on the southern flank of the Erdas Dag massif to the north.
