Machine translation, like DeepL or Google Translate, is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia. Consider adding a topic to this template: there are already 9,106 articles in the main category, and specifying|topic= will aid in categorization. Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.

Volcanic fields in China

  • The Arshan volcanic field is found in the Greater Khingan mountain range, it contains more than 40 cenozoic volcanic cones.[1]
  • The Honggeertu volcanic field consists of 12 cinder cones which may be holocene [2]
  • The Jingbo volcanic field is in the Jingpo Lake region of Heilongjiang province[3]
  • The Keluo volcanic field may have had historic eruptions [4]
  • The Kunlun Volcanic Group last had an eruption on 27 May 1951, and consists of at least 70 pyroclastic cones [5]
  • The Longgang volcanic field contains 150 scoria cones but only one of holocene age [6]
  • the Qionglei volcano group (also known as the Leiqiong volcanic field) stretches across the Qiongzhou Strait north of Hainan island – so is made up of two parts:
    • The Hainan Dao volcanic field is the southern part consisting of 58 Pleistocene-Holocene tholeiitic cones[7]
    • The Leizhou Bandao volcanic field is the northern part including the stratovolcanoes Tiangyang and Yingfengling as well as several pyroclastic cones, it lies just west of Zhanjiang City[8]
  • The Rehai geothermal field which is part of the Tengchong volcanic district (Tengchong) has had 20 hydrothermal eruptions since 1993 [9]
  • The Tianshan volcano group contains the historically active cone Pechan[10]
  • The Wudalianchi volcanic field erupted in 1720–1721 forming the five lakes at Wudalianchi, and again in 1776[11]
