Details for: Valle, El
Three compound lava domes were constructed along the northern margin of the youngest caldera of El Valle volcano, 80 km SW of Panama City. Cerro Pajita (left), Cerro Gaital (center), and Cerro Caracoral (right) rise above the flat caldera floor in this view from the SW caldera rim. The 6-km-wide El Valle de Antón caldera was formed about 1 million years ago. Post-caldera eruptions have occurred as recently as about 13,000 years ago. A geothermal exploration program is currently underway to evaluate the energy potential of the caldera. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1998 (Smithsonian Institution).
