Lava flowing is seen here on 11 December 1998 flowing down the Cordobán drainage (barrancas) on Colima's upper SW flank. From left to right these headwaters comprise the Western, Central, and Eastern Cordobán. The light-colored areas below the lava flow lobes are pyroclastic flow deposits formed by collapse of the lava flow fronts.
