Laguna de Madera occupies the roughly 800-m-wide summit crater of Maderas volcano. The summit and flanks of the volcano are offset along numerous faults. A N-S-trending leaf graben (a depression with opposing crescentic faults) cuts the west side of the summit of the heavily forested volcano. Displacements of 100 m or more occur on this and several other faults cutting the volcano.
