An aerial view of the Fuego summit crater in 1990 shows the products of both effusive and explosive eruptions. The crater walls expose light-colored lava flows and lava agglutinate as well as darker scoria deposits. Historical eruptions have been basaltic in composition, continuing a trend towards more mafic in the Acatenango-Fuego volcanic complex. An Acatenango flank is to the left in this view from the SW.
