Cerro Evermann, the high point of Socorro Island, rises above a Mexican Naval camp near the southern tip of the island.  Socorro lies in the Revillagigedo Islands south of Baja California.  Cerro Evermann is a large tephra cone and lava dome complex that forms the 1050-m-high summit of the volcano.  Rhyolitic lava domes have been constructed along flank rifts, and silicic lava flows erupted from summit and flank vents have created an extremely irregular shoreline.  Only minor explosive activity has occurred in historical time. Photo by Martha Marin, 1998 (Mexican Navy).
