Since the end of the 1759-1774 eruption the crater of Jorullo volcano has been collapsing inward along steep, arcuate step faults, increasing its diameter to 400 x 500 m; its current depth is 150 m.  Sparsely vegetated lava flows can be seen at the top below the north flank of the cone. Photo by Jim Luhr, 1997 (Smithsonian Institution).
