suc - définition géologique

Je sais qu'il y a une chaine de montagne en France qui s'appèle "chaine des Sucs," mais le mot suc n'est seulement un nom propre. De géo-wiki:

Dans les Cévennes et le Massif central, le terme suc est réservé à des sommets d'origine volcanique, dômes, pitons coniques, necks, plus rarement, coulées… Un suquet est un petit suc…
(source)

Donc, est-ce que quelqu'un connait la traduction de ce terme en anglais?

Merci

    Bonjour,

    Mont Blanc also has a meaning, but you don't translate it. Why would you translate "chaîne des Sucs"?

    Edit : meanwhile I'm searching, and for the moment I can see that in bilingual sites the word is never translated, we have sentences like "French volcanic hills named “Sucs” ".

    Je ne veux pas traduire "Chaine des Sucs," mais le mot suc qui existe à part entière, comme rocky et Rocky Mountains, et c'est "suc" que je veux traduire.

    The GDT notes suc as a local term and provides no translation. This would suggest that it is indeed a local term quite specific to that particular French-speaking region, and that, as such, it does not have an English translation.
