Background:

The International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior data sheets (1973) listed Cerro Moiro (also known as Cerro Negro) in SW Bolivia as being active during the past 2000 years, but de Silva and Francis (1991) found no evidence from satellite image analysis of Holocene activity. Later higher-resolution satellite imagery suggested a possible Pleistocene age (de Silva 2007, pers. comm.). The andesitic scoria cone was constructed on a rhyolitic ignimbrite plateau.
