Volcán Coronado is a small stratovolcano at the northern tip of Coronado Island, 3 km off the eastern coast of Baja California in the Canal de los Ballenas. The roughly 440-m-high volcano forms a 2-km-wide peninsula at the northern end of the elongated NNW-SSE-trending island and contains a 300 x 160 m wide crater. The age of the most recent eruptive activity from Volcán Coronado is not known, although fumarolic activity was reported in September 1539 (Medina et al., 1989).
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Coronado. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Coronado page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Coronado.

Isla Coronado is the irregular elongated island at the upper left center with four distinct segments; Volcán Coronado forms the largest peninsula at the northern tip of the island. Elongated Angel de la Guarda Island across the Canal de los Ballenas stretches across the top of the photo.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
