Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-12511
The summit crater of San Miguel, or Chaparrastique, volcano is in the center of this November 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 12 km across). Spatter and scoria cones have formed across the flanks during eruptions that emplaced lava flows up to 8 km from the vent. A flank cone that erupted a lava flow during the 1699 eruption is in the SW corner of this image (now vegetated) and the Chinameca caldera is in the NW corner.
