Summary of Holocene eruption dates and Volcanic Explosivity Indices (VEI).
|Start Date||Stop Date||Eruption Certainty||VEI||Evidence||Activity Area or Unit|
|1320 BCE (?)||Unknown||Confirmed||5||Radiocarbon (uncorrected)|
This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.
|Feature Name||Feature Type||Elevation||Latitude||Longitude|
|Caliente, Cerro||Stratovolcano||5368 m||17° 9' 41" S||70° 12' 37" W|
|Yucamane Chico||Cone||5355 m||17° 8' 37" S||70° 12' 22" W|
|Yucamane, Volcan||Stratovolcano||5495 m||17° 11' 1" S||70° 11' 46" W|
|Volcán Yucamane (center) lies at the south end of a group of three volcanoes between the Río Callazas (left-center) and Río de Calientes (right-center). Laguna de Vilacota (upper right) lies east of the volcano. Both Yucamane and Cerro Caliente, the edifice immediately to the north, display evidence of postglacial lava flows. The andesitic Yucamane volcano has a youthful, well-preserved summit crater, and the volcano may have had historical eruptions.

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.

|EarthChem||EarthChem develops and maintains databases, software, and services that support the preservation, discovery, access and analysis of geochemical data, and facilitate their integration with the broad array of other available earth science parameters. EarthChem is operated by a joint team of disciplinary scientists, data scientists, data managers and information technology developers who are part of the NSF-funded data facility Integrated Earth Data Applications (IEDA). IEDA is a collaborative effort of EarthChem and the Marine Geoscience Data System (MGDS).|
