Eruptive History

There is data available for 2 confirmed Holocene eruptive periods.

1210 (in or before) ± 26 years Confirmed Eruption Max VEI: 3

Episode 1 | Eruption Episode
1210 (in or before) ± 26 years - Unknown Evidence from Isotopic: 14C (uncalibrated)
 An eruption that left pyroclastic density current deposits on the east flank had an overlying paleosol 14C dated at 740 ± 26 cal. BP, so the activity may be older than the 13th century.

Episode 1 | Eruption Episode
0749 BCE ± 77 years - Unknown Evidence from Isotopic: 14C (calibrated)
 A basaltic to andesitic eruption, with pumice and ash flows that may have resulted from Vulcanian-type (or Plinian-type) fountain or column collapses, was constrained to 2,669 ± 77 cal. BP based on 14C dating of charcoal enclosed in dense pyroclastic density currents (Faral et al., 2022).
