Jumaytepeque is a small basaltic stratovolcano located NNE of the city of Cuilapa, north of the major NW-SE-trending Jalpatagua fault that cuts diagonally across SE Guatemala. The 1815-m-high volcano was constructed near the SE rim of the large Miocene Santa Rosa de Lima caldera. Jumaytepeque volcano is not overlain by a ca. 23,000-year-old tephra unit from nearby Ayarza caldera, and its erosionally unmodified form suggests that Holocene activity is possible (Reynolds 2007, pers. comm.). Two older cinder cones to the north are covered with Ayarza tephra.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Jumaytepeque. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Jumaytepeque 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 Jumaytepeque.
|Jumaytepeque, on the center horizon, is a small basaltic stratovolcano that is seen rising to SE from a resurgent dome of the Miocene Santa Rose de Lima caldera. The 1815-m-high Jumaytepeque volcano was constructed near the SE rim of the caldera, and its youthful profile suggests a possible Holocene age. The volcano on the far horizon to the right of Jumaytepeque is Ixhuatán volcano.

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.
