Earlier Ararat eruptions are known from oral history and archaeological excavations.

These occurred in AD 17, around 550 BC, and another time even earlier.

Of all the famous “lost” artifacts yet to be found, Noah’s Ark tops the list in many people’s minds.

A veteran named Ed Davis claimed he saw the remains of Noah’s Ark while he was stationed in Iran during World War II.

Later expeditions claimed to find beam-like rocks on Mount Suleiman Mount Ararat is technically known as a stratovolcano.

The summit of Greater Ararat is 16,854 feet (5137 m) above sea level, while Lesser Ararat, just 8 miles (13 km) to the east of it, is only 12,782 feet (3896 m) high.

Together they cover a massive area of 420 square miles (1090 km) of lavas and volcanic ash. It is a dormant volcano today, but it was active until recently.

How were the rocks and strata in this region formed and changed during the Flood and in the years afterward?

The biblical reference to “mountains of Ararat” as the landing site of the Ark suggests those mountains formed well before the Flood ended.Since the 1800s, several dozen expeditions have scaled Mt.Ararat in hopes of finding evidence of Noah’s Ark, and more are planned in the coming years.In the climactic phase, lava flowed copiously to add another 2,700 feet (820 m) to the cones.Finally, lavas and volcanic ash erupted from cracks in the flanks.A US Air Force reconnaissance plane took black-and-white images of the northwest side of Mt.
