BackgroundA broad area of Quaternary volcanic rocks surrounds the town of Nueva Guadalupe, north and NW of Chinameca volcano. Loma Larga and Cerro Lolotique form west- and south-facing escarpments, respectively, that overlook Nueva Guadalupe and the town of Chinameca. Although the Pan-American highway traverses the flanks of the two escarpments, geologic studies have focused on the more dramatic neighboring volcanoes of the San Miguel-Tecapa cluster, and relatively little is known of the geologic history of this area.
