Photo Gallery


The volcanic complex in the center of this NASA Landsat composite image is Cordón del Azufre, a small volcanic center straddling the Chile-Argentina border. A dacitic lava-dome complex lies at the eastern side of the complex, in Argentina. The prominent dark-colored lava flow from Volcán la Moyra, the youngest feature of the volcanic field, descended 6 km into Chile and 3 km into Argentina. Lava flows from Bayo volcano to the SW are visible at the lower left.
