A diffuse gas plume emits from the summit of Colima with a rate of 320 ± 50 tons/day in February 1982. Volcanism at the Colima volcanic complex has migrated southward from the 300-500 km3 Nevado de Colima in the background. The ancestral Colima volcano was constructed on the southern flank of Nevado de Colima and then collapsed to form the scarp, which now holds the modern Colima edifice (foreground) that grew over the past 2,600 years.
