Details for: Chiquimula Volcanic Field
The Chiquimula volcanic field occupies a fault-bounded basin underlain by light-colored Cretaceous plutonic rocks in the Chiquimula Valley of SE Guatemala. The most recent eruptions produced basaltic cinder cones and lava flows constructed along a N-S-trending fracture starting near the northern edge of Chiquimula town. Part of the town is seen on the valley floor to the right of the hill in the center of this photo, taken from the NW along the road to Maraxco.
