A steam plume pours off the summit of Colima volcano in June 1978, with sharp-peaked Nevado de Colima in the background to the north. During an eruptive period from December 1977 to June 1982, growth of the summit lava dome was accompanied by periodic small exposions and block-and-ash flows. A lava flow was extruded down the south flank beginning in December 1981.
