Geological Background

The Keluo volcanic field in NE China is located near the Russian border, south of the Heilongjiang (Black Dragon) River. The Keluo field, like its better known neighbor to the south, the Wudalianchi volcanic field, contains many high-potassium basaltic cinder cones. Nanshan cone, located at the southern end of the field north of the Keluo River, may be of historical age based on its youthful lava topography, and Gushan may also be of Holocene age. Other cones to the NE are of Pleistocene to Tertiary age. Cinder cones of the Keluo volcanic field are located at the intersections of regional NE- and NW-trending lineaments and were erupted through basement volcanic and sedimentary rocks of Jurassic-Cretaceous age, granitic rocks, and pre-Permian metasediments. There are unconformed reports of historical activity at Keluo.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Keluo Group. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Keluo Group page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. 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.
