Campo vulcanico 2075 m / 6,808 ft
North-Central Mexico, 25.15°N / -104.45°W
Stato attuale: normal or dormant (1 di 5)
Durango volcano is a volcanic field in north-central Mexico north of the city of Durango, located at the NW end of the Meseta Central and the eastern edge of the Sierra Madre Occidental. The volcanic field covers 2100 sq km and contains about 100 maars, cinder cones and lava flows.
Stile eruttivo tipico
Young activity occurred from the La Breña cone only a few thousand years ago.
: hydromagmatic (maar-forming), strombolian (cinder-cone forming)
Eruzioni del vulcano Durango
: unknown, probably a few 1000 years ago

The Durango volcanic field has erupted basanitic lavas and forms a large undissected lava plain within the Mexican Basin and Range province.
Many eruptions in the Durango field display an evolution from predonimantly maar-forming phreatomagmatic eruptions in the past to dominantly magmatic eruptions (strombolian activity) building cinder cones and erupting lava flows in younger times. This suggests a trend of decreasing presence of ground water in the area over time.
La Breña-El Jagüey maar complex
consists of 2 intersecting maars, the largest of which (La Breña) contains a series of nested cinder cones. The maar complex is one of the youngest eruptive centers of the Durango volcanic field.
