Photo Gallery

Romeral, a recently documented Holocene volcano, forms the dark-green forested area near the clouds above the center of this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top). The andesitic-to-dacitic Romeral stratovolcano produced two plinian pumice eruptions that blanket areas NW of the volcano. Romeral volcano lies at the northern end of the Ruiz-Tolima volcanic chain, NW of Cerro Bravo volcano, which lies east of the city of Manizales, which forms the gray area at the lower left.
