Chiliques volcano eruptions
stratovolcano 5778 m / 18,956 ft
Northern Chile / Bolivia / Argentina border, -23.58°S / -67.7°W
Eruption list: none in recent times, but probably within the past 10,000 years
2002 hot spots detected in crater
Until 2002, the volcano had been considered dormant or even extinct, but satellite images discovered weak hot spots in the crater and on the upper flank, which had not been there previously. These are probably new fumaroles, that might be indicators of a re-awakening of the volcano. This observation does NOT mean that an eruption of the volcano took place (even though it would be a very remote possibility that a small extrusion of lava took place and was only detected after it started to cool down again.)

Latest quakes at Katla volcano
: One of Iceland's most active and dangerous volcanoes is showing signs of unrest and statistically due for a new eruption. Earthquakes could give a clue.
