Large clasts in an oxidized scoria matrix of the Acajutla debris avalanche deposit are exposed at the Pacific Ocean coastline more than 40 km from Santa Ana volcano. Clasts with a jigsaw fracture pattern can be seen at the top of the photo and clasts at least 6 m in diameter are nearby. Note the rock hammer in the center for scale.
