Background

The Cat Hills volcanic field west of Albuquerque contains about two dozen small cinder cones erupted along a N-S fissure, a small shield volcano and a Pliocene maar. The Cat Hills field was formed about 0.14 million years ago (Ma); the Los Lunas volcano to the SE formed between 1.3-1.1 Ma (Kudo, in Wood and Kienle 1990).
