Details for: Suchitan
The elongated Suchitán volcano, seen here from the west on the rim of Retana caldera, is the highest of a cluster of closely spaced small stratovolcanoes and basaltic cinder-cone fields in SE Guatemala. The large peak to the left of the 2042-m-high summit of Suchitán is Cerro Mataltepe; other cinder cones occur lower on the north flank. One of the latest lava flows from Suchitán traveled through a low notch in the east rim of the caldera. The flat-bottomed floor of Retana caldera once contained a lake, but now is used for agricultural land. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1993 (Smithsonian Institution).
