Details for: Jocotitlan
Jocotitlán is an isolated composite dacitic volcano that rises 1300 m above the Toluca basin. It is seen here from the NW, facing a horseshoe-shaped escarpment that formed as a result of gravitational failure of the summit during the early Holocene. The conical hills of Cerro San Miguel (left) and Cerro la Cruz (center) are part of the resulting debris-avalanche deposit that covers an 80 sq km area NE of the volcano. The latest known eruption of Jocotitlán occurred about 700 years ago. Photo by José Macías, 1997 (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México).
