Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-10493

Four large Pleistocene volcanic complexes are visible in this Landsat image of southern Guatemala, with the Pacific coastal plain at the bottom.  Minor activity at Tecuamburro volcano continued into the Holocene at Laguna Ixpaco, the small circular white dot a little more than half-way between the Tecuamburro and Piedra Grande labels.  The Río los Esclavos extends from the upper right, cutting between Tecuamburro and Ixhuatán volcanoes. NASA Landsat image, 2000 (courtesy of Loren Siebert, University of Akron).
