Background

Carihuairazo is an eroded Pleistocene stratovolcano truncated by edifice collapse, leaving a caldera breached to the NE. A younger volcano, Puñalica, was constructed between about 18,000 and 14,000 years before present 5 km east of Carihuairazo (Clapperton 1990). A landslide and lahar in 1698 produced debris that reached the town of Ambato (Hall 1987, pers. comm.).
