Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-12499
The Colima volcanic complex has two main edifices, the northern Nevado de Colima and the active Volcán de Colima to the south, both in the center of this December 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 44 km across). The active cone formed within a 5-km-wide flank collapse scarp, that produced a debris avalanche to the south, one of at least nine collapse events during the past 45,000 years.
