Photo Gallery

Three major Quaternary volcanic complexes are visible in this Landsat satellite image of Baja California. The N-S-trending Las Vírgenes volcanic complex at the left center consists of three southward-younging stratovolcanoes. The dramatic 10-km-wide La Reforma caldera along the Gulf of California coast at the upper right displays dark-colored andesitic outer flanks and a resurgent dome in the center of the caldera. The extensively eroded El Aguajito caldera lies north of Tres Vírgenes and NW of La Reforma and has indistinct margins.
