|Sajama volcano in Bolivia towers beyond the Chilean border above Laguna Chungará. Blocky Pleistocene lava flows from Parinacota volcano, out of view to the left, extend across the middle of the photo. Sajama is Bolivia's highest peak and rises about 2000 m above its base. The dominantly andesitic volcano overlies andesitic-to-rhyolitic lava domes.

|Nevado del Sajama, rising to 6542 m about 20 km east of the Chilean border, is Bolivia's highest mountain. The steep-sided volcano is seen here from the Chilean side of the border, rising above Laguna Chungará, which was formed when a debris avalanche from Parinacota volcano (out of view to the left) blocked drainages. Sajama consists of an andesitic stratovolcano overlying andesitic-to-rhyodacitic lava domes. Pleistocene lava flows from Parinacota form the ridge at the left, and the flanks of Pleistocene Quisiquisini volcano rise to the right.

|The Sentinel Hub Playground provides a quick look at any Sentinel-2 image in any combination of the bands and enhanced with image effects; Landsat 8, DEM and MODIS are also available. Sentinel Hub is an engine for processing of petabytes of satellite data. It is opening the doors for machine learning and helping hundreds of application developers worldwide. It makes Sentinel, Landsat, and other Earth observation imagery easily accessible for browsing, visualization and analysis. Sentinel Hub is operated by Sinergise|
|IRIS seismic stations/networks||Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) Data Services map showing the location of seismic stations from all available networks (permanent or temporary) within a radius of 0.18° (about 20 km at mid-latitudes) from the given location of Nevado del Sajama. Users can customize a variety of filters and options in the left panel. Note that if there are no stations are known the map will default to show the entire world with a "No data matched request" error notice.|

|WOVOdat is a database of volcanic unrest; instrumentally and visually recorded changes in seismicity, ground deformation, gas emission, and other parameters from their normal baselines. It is sponsored by the World Organization of Volcano Observatories (WOVO) and presently hosted at the Earth Observatory of Singapore.|
