The Arenal volcanic complex, seen here in 1990 from Lake Arenal to its SW, consists of the Arenal edifice (left) and the older Cerro Chato (right), whose flat summit contains a crater and a crater lake. Activity at the complex has migrated to the NW from the Chatito and La Espina lava domes to the right of Cerro Chato.  Photo by William Melson, 1990 (Smithsonian Institution)
