Sfondo

A large volcanic field of Mesozoic to late-Pleistocene age occupies the central part of the Mexican Volcanic Belt in the NE part of the Valley of Mexico. The Apan-Tezontepec volcanic field covers portions of the states of Hildalgo, Tlaxcala, and México and contains about 300 eruptive centers. The vast majority of these are scoria cones, but shield volcanoes, lava flows, and lava domes are also present. The location of the vents is influenced by regional normal faults. Two of the largest Quaternary volcanoes of the Apan-Tezontepec volcanic field are Chiconautla and 3100-m-high Cerro Gordo, which rises immediately NE of Mexico City. The Tizayuca volcanic field lies at the NW corner of the Apan-Tezontepec volcanic field.
