Photo Gallery

The conical, glacier-clad Nevado de Longaví volcano is seen from the SE. In the foreground is a Holocene block-and-ash flow deposit. This late-Pleistocene to Holocene andesitic stratovolcano was constructed over a basement of sedimentary and granitic rocks. A small lava dome forms the 3242-m-high summit of Longaví. No historical eruptions are known, although fumarolic activity continues.
