TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation
Yucamane is an active andesitic stratovolcano in southern Perú at the southern end of a group of 3 volcanoes (including Tutupaca and Cerro Caliente volcanoes to the north).
Eruptions at the volcano have produced lava flows, airfall deposits, pyroclastic flows and surges (mainly block-and-ash flows produced by lava dome collapse).

Background:

Yucamane volcano has a young and well-preserved summit crater and has probably erupted many times during the past 10,000 years, although may reports from eruptions in the area are unclear as to which volcano erupted.
The most recent larger explosive (plinian) eruption occurred about 3300 radiocarbon years ago.
