Background:

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).

Ocate Photos:

Aerial view of Vulcano Island. The left older part of the island is an older caldera - the remnant of a dissected stratovolcano, the right part is a younger caldera where the present-day harbour and tourist village of Vulcano is located next to the active cone (light brown) La Fossa. A narrow land bridge connects the island with the peninsula formed by the little cone Vulcanello (an island, that appeared in Roman times), mostly out of the right frame in this picture.

The southern part of Santorini island. Before the Minoan eruption at around 1613 BC, the coastline was much farther inland, and the now fertile ash plain was a rocky platform where the city of the Bronze Age island was located. In the area where a small part of the Cycladic town is excavated, a crane is visible. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

The summit of Volcán de Colima is hidden by the clouds but not the eruptive column. The picture was taken from Montegrande gully located south of the volcano on December 9, 2015. Dead vegetation and unconsolidated deposits evidence the path taken by a series of pyroclastic flows which descended along the gully in July 2015. (Photo: PepCabré)
