Volcanoes of Turkey

There are about 1400 active volcanoes around the world. These are considered ‘active’ having had eruptions in the last 10,000 years. That sounds a long time, but in geological time is very recent. we consider activity within that time as indicating that there could be new activity in the future. Turkey is home to just ten volcanoes we think are active. There are many more that we think had activity before 10,000 years ago.
