Cerro Asososca Volcano, Nicaragua

Lake-filled Laguna de Asososca maar, in the foreground, and the conical Cerro Asososca at the upper right were formed by eruptions at the southern end of a N-S fissure system of Las Pilas volcanic complex in Nicaragua.

The ages of these vents are not known.

This view looks from the NE across the broad plain at the foot of the Marrabios Range to the Pacific Ocean in the distance.
