Details for: Tolima, Nevado del
The steep-sided, glacier-clad Tolima volcano is seen here from the slopes of Nevado del Ruiz volcano to the north. The summit of Tolima consists of a cluster of late-Pleistocene to Holocene lava domes and contains a funnel-shaped crater 200-300 m deep. Holocene activity has ranged from moderate explosions to plinian eruptions. The last major eruption took place about 3600 years ago. Minor explosive eruptions took place in the 19th and 20th centuries. Photo by Tom Pierson, 1985 (U.S. Geological Survey).
