Volcán de Jorcada is an elongated fissure-controlled volcanic massif extending between the Pastos Grandes caldera and Laguna Colorada in Bolivia. More than 50 craters, small stratovolcanoes, and lava domes are located along four fissures covering an area of 230 km2. Eight small andesitic-to-dacitic stratovolcanoes with craters 0.2-1.5 km wide are located along the southernmost fissure. A second fissure, oriented NW-SE and 10 km long, contains ten volcanic centers with craters with widths of 0.2-1.2 km. A third fissure, trending NE, produced seven rhyodacitic lava domes. Activity has migrated to the north, with the youngest fissure, on the NW side of the complex, estimated to be of probable Holocene age (González-Ferrán, 1995). De Silva (2007 pers. comm.) dated this youngest fissure at 95,000 yrs BP. This NW-trending fissure, 7 km long, contains 27 small basaltic-andesite craters.

Volcano Special Tours
: We organize tours to particularly active volcanoes and during ongoing eruptions for extended observation time from various viewpoints. These trips, exclusively for very small groups, are often announced only at short notice and require fast travel and flexibility. Each trip is accompanied by a volcanologist from our team. Examples include: Kilauea (Hawai'i), Colima (Mexico), Krakatau and many others.
Desert, Salt & Volcanoes
: Experience one of the geologically most active areas on the planet: the Danakil desert in northern Ethiopia. Highlights include Erta Ale volcano with its active lava lake and Dallol hydrothermal fields offering a surreal landscape of colors, salt, geysers and springs.
Photos from Armenia
: Armenia is a very photogenic country with a large variety of landscapes showing some very spectacular geology, century-old monasteries and castles, and much more.
: Lists and maps of earthquakes in the world in near real time. Country lists, earthquake archive, and I-felt-it reports.
