Colima volcano, Mexico: aerial images 27 Feb 2015

Aerial photos taken during an overflight on the morning of 27 Feb 2015 with fine views onto the volcano and its surrounding. Unfortunately, no eruption occurred during the flight, which is why a second flight on 28 Feb was done.

Hummocky landscape at the southern feet of Colima, deposits of the youngest debris avalanche affecting the southern sector, probably about 4300 years ago. Hummocks are irregular, very large (tens of meters in size), still coherent pieces from the collapsed part of the volcano deposited during the landslide. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
