Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Comondu-La Purisima
A young cinder cone rises above cactus-covered terrain NE of the town of La Purísima. The Comondú-La Purísima volcanic field, located in southern Baja California, west of the Sierra de la Giganta, has been active from the Miocene to the Quaternary. The youngest lavas form blocky flows with flow ridges and are mostly located in the area between Comondú and La Purísima river. Vents usually occur along NNW-trending faults, and many lava flows are offset, sometimes repeatedly, along grabens. Photo by Brian Hausback, 1983 (California State University, Sacramento).
