Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Pinacate
The Pinacate volcanic field is a roughly 55 x 60 km area containing numerous maars, tuff rings, and cinder cones. The field is prominent in satellite photos of this arid region of NW México near the head of the Gulf of California. The crater rim in the center of the photo is that of Crater Elegante, a 1.6-km-wide maar. Pinacate Peak in the distance caps the Santa Clara shield volcano, which is dotted with many youthful scoria cones and morphologically fresh lava-flow fields.
