Details for: Tunkin Depression
The ice-covered SW end of Lake Baikal cuts across this NASA Space Shuttle image. The snow-free lowlands west of the lake are partially occupied by the Tunkin Depression volcanic field, which covers a broad area west of the lake. The volcanic field (also known as the Tunka Depression) contains five groups of late-Pleistocene to Holocene cinder cones and lava flows, some of which are partially buried by sediments in the subsiding depression. The Angara River (top-center) flows from the NE into Lake Baikal. NASA Space Shuttle image ISS002-305-15, 2001 (http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/).
