Lomas Blancas volcano

stratovolcano 2268 m / 7,441 ft
Argentinien/Chile (Zentrum), Südamerika, -36.29°S / -71.01°W
Current status: normal or dormant (1 out of 5)

Volcán Lomas Blancas is a small and young shield-like stratovolcano located about 15 km SE of Nevado de Longaví volcano. It has a 2.3-km-wide caldera, possibly formed by edifice collapse. The caldera is open to the SE where basaltic-andesite aa lava flows extend 7 km from the collapse scarp.
The basaltic central cone rises about 500 m from its base. Much of the volcano is covered by pumice deposits that probably originated from Nevado de Longaví.
