Stato attuale: normal or dormant (1 di 5)
El Chichón volcano in southern Mexico forms a broad symmetrical cone with a diameter of 10 km at itsbase and is capped by a 600 m wide crater containing a 80 m high andesitic lava dome.Stile eruttivo tipico
El Chichón became famous for its large eruption in 1982 that affected the world's climate for the following years with a measurable cooling effect caused by the large amounts of SO2 aerosols ejected into the atmosphere.

El Chichón is a small trachyandesitic tuff cone and lava dome complex that occupies an isolated part of the Chiapas region in SE México far from other Holocene volcanoes. Prior to 1982, this relatively unknown volcano was heavily forested and of no greater height than adjacent nonvolcanic peaks. The largest dome, the former summit of the volcano, was constructed within a 1.6 x 2 km summit crater created about 220,000 years ago.
2 other large craters are located on the SW and SE flanks; a lava dome fills the SW crater, and an older dome is located on the NW flank. More than ten large explosive eruptions have occurred since the mid-Holocene. The powerful 1982 explosive eruptions of high-sulfur, anhydrite-bearing magma destroyed the summit lava dome and were accompanied by pyroclastic flows and surges that devastated an area extending about 8 km around the volcano. The eruptions in 1982 created a new 1-km-wide, 300-m-deep crater that now contains an acidic crater lake.

Tours to erupting volcanoes
: From time to time, we organize special tours to see volcanoes in eruption. These are often announced only few days or weeks in advance. Find out more!
Bromo volcano photos
: Bromo is one of Indonesia's most visited volcanoes. It is the most active vent inside the huge Tengger caldera and erupts every few years.
: A third tectonic setting where volcanism occurs is believed to be the result of mantle plumes and not directly related to plate boundaries. So called hot spot volcanoes fall into this category.
