Wave erosion rapidly modified the once smooth coastal margin of the lava delta erupted in 1952-53.  The vent for the flow lies at the upper left at the base of the light-colored tuff cone also formed during the eruption.  The Delta Lávico flow extended 700 m out to sea and formed a peninsula about 1200 m wide.   Photo by Hugo Delgado-Granados, 1993 (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México).
