BackgroundVolcán Antofalla is a 6409-m-high Argentinian stratovolcano west of the Salar de Antofalla. The andesitic-to-rhyolitic main edifice is surrounded by a circular ring of smaller satellitic stratovolcanoes. Sapper (1917) reported "smoke" clouds from Volcán Antofalla in 1901 and 1911, but detailed study showed that its youngest rocks were erupted during the early Pleistocene (Richards et al., 2006). Younger small-volume monogenetic volcanism took place on the SW and western flanks later in the Pleistocene.
