Background:

The International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior data sheets (1973) considered the andesitic-to-dacitic Cerro San Agustín stratovolcano to have been active during the past 2000 years, but de Silva and Francis (1991) noted no evidence from analysis satellite images of Holocene activity in this area, and de Silva (2007 pers. comm) considered the volcano to be of Pleistocene age.
