Ceboruco Volcano, Mexico

Ceboruco Volcano, Mexico

A small lava dome capped by blocky spines was extruded in the principal vent of the 1870-75 eruption of Ceboruco volcano in western Mexico.

Fumaroles (not visible in this photo) with temperatures measured at about 100 degrees Centigrade are located around the base of the dome.

The plug dome was extruded late in the eruption in a crater formed by explosions that decapitated the main vent of the 1870 eruption and significantly lowered the crater floor.
