Background

The International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior data sheets (1973) classified Patilla Pata volcano in Bolivia NW of Sajama volcano as being active during the past 2000 years, but de Silva (2007 pers. comm.) noted no evidence from analysis of satellite images for Holocene activity in this area. Patilla Pata has undergone extensive glacial erosion. The andesitic stratovolcano has also produced basaltic lava flows.
