Post-caldera resurgent blocks of the early Pleistocene La Reforma caldera rise to the north above the Gulf of California. The roughly 10-km-wide caldera contains a 1300-m-high central dome (left-center horizon) made of resurgent basement rocks. Ignimbrite outflow sheets form flat surfaces and scarps, and uplifted marine terraces are prominent along the coast.
