Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-11063

Glacier-clad Melimoyu is the prominent stratovolcano in this oblique NASA International Space Station image looking west toward the Corcovado Gulf.  The volcano has an ice-filled 8-km-wide caldera that is drained by a glacier through a notch in the NE rim.  The basaltic-andesite volcano is Pleistocene-Holocene in age.
