Pular is a stratovolcano in the Antofagasta Region of northern Chile, NW of the Salar de Pular and 15 km from the border with Argentina. The volcano belongs to a 12-km long chain of several vents and volcanoes, which have erupted extensive lava flows.
A large satellite vent west of the ridge is known as Cerro Pajonales and is probably the youngest vent of the volcanic complex.
Reports of a small explosive eruption in 1990 could not be confirmed as to where it occurred.

Background:

Cerros Pular and Pajonales volcanoes are on the NE and SW end of 12-km-long volcanic ridge that is mostly older than 10,000 years. The volcanoes on the chain have erupted andesitic lava flows that overly older dacitic lava domes.
Many lava lava flows reached the lower flanks of the chain and there are about 10 craters.
