The Crater Basalt Volcanic Field in Argentina covers around 700 km2, with a portion of the field shown in this July 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 33 km across). There are at least nine scoria cones across the field as well as the mostly pahoehoe lava flows reaching out to 5 km.
