An aerial photo on April 24, 1991 shows deposits from the 1991 eruption of Colima in the lower part of the Barranca El Cordobán on the south flank.  The light-colored deposits at the bottom of the photo, which originated from block-and-ash flows, have steep flow fronts and well-defined levees.  The darker, most recent deposits near the top of the photo contain a higher amount of juvenile (fresh magmatic) material. Photo by Jean-Christophe Komorowski, 1991(Arizona State University).
