Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-12522
Maderas volcano forms the 12-km-wide SE part of Ometepe island, with Concepción out of view to the NE of this March 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top). The ridge on the SW flank is due to slumping and the ridge across the NE flank is due to normal faulting, creating a graben across the top of the edifice. A summit crater has formed within the graben.
