Background

from Smithsonian / GVP Tambo Quemado volcano information:
Tambo Quemado consists of a broad ignimbrite shield capped by an elongated NNE-SSW-trending vent area about 2 x 3.5 km in diameter formed by 3 large overlapping craters. The youngest crater lies at the southern end of the 4215-m-high summit region and contains a blocky lava dome. Wind has redistributed tephra deposits to the east and south, forming sand dunes.
