Eruptive History

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Hertali. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Hertali page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

Deformation History

There is data available for 2 deformation periods. Expand each entry for additional details.
