Trolon (also called Trocon) volcano lies in Argentina NE of the Caldera del Agrio. This dacitic-andesitic lava-dome complex has two summit craters and a pyroclastic cone that fed andesitic lava flows that traveled to the east. González-Ferrán (1995) estimated an age of Pleistocene-Holocene.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Trolon. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Trolon page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
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.
|The small snow-free crater at the upper right, above and to the right of the light-colored area just right of the center of this NASA International Space Station image (with north to the upper left) is Trocon volcano. Trocon lies in Argentina NE of the Caldera del Agrio (lower right), whose floor contains several lakes, including the U-shaped one at lower right near the SE caldera wall. Trocon is a lava-dome complex with two summit craters and a pyroclastic cone. Snow-covered Callaqui volcano (bottom left-center) overlies the western rim of Caldera del Agrio.

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.
