Background

Reclus volcano is the source of several Holocene tephra layers in Patagonia. As many as 6 larger explosive eruptions have occurred in the past 3780 years, as they overly a peat layer dated at this age.
The volcano is being actively eroded by the Amalia Glacier, which drains off the Patagonian Icecap. Later work revealed evidence for historical eruptions in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
