The Ocate (Mora) volcanic field is part of the Jemez Lineament and located east of the Rio Grande Rift in northern New Mexico. It contains numerous basaltic to dacitic flows and cinder cones over a 90 km2 area. The field was active from 8.3-0.8 million years ago, although most activity ended by the Pleistocene (Baldridge, in Wood and Kienle 1990).
