Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-11434

The light-colored area at the left side of this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the upper left) is the Puyehue-Cordón Caulle volcanic complex.  The elongated Cordón Caulle volcanic chain at the far left merges with the circular, snow-filled caldera of Puyehue volcano.  The chain of small snow-covered volcanoes extending diagonally toward the upper right above Puyehue is Mencheca volcano.  Numerous flank vents, including maars, lava domes, and cinder cones, dot the Puyehue-Cordón Caulle complex.   NASA Space Shuttle image STS088-706-14, 1998 (http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/).
