Details for: Payun Matru
The 3680-m-high Cerro Payún Matru volcanic complex in Argentina includes an 8 x 10 km wide caldera that cuts an alkaline shield volcano. Post-caldera basaltic eruptions produced more than 150 eruptive centers, including lava domes and pyroclastic cones. The E-W-trending fissures that extend across the entire shield volcano produced numerous youthful-looking lava flows visible in this NASA Space Shuttle image. A lava flow from Volcán Santa María that traveled 15 km to the NE is prominent at the top of the image. NASA Space Shuttle image ISS006-E-6773, 2002 (http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/).
