Details for: Antofagasta Volcanic Field
The Antofagasta de la Sierra volcanic field, located between the elongated NE-SW-trending Salar de Antofalla and the massive Cerro Galán caldera to the east, contains the youngest volcanic vents of the Argentinian Puna region. The area includes several "extremely youthful" scoria cones, such as the ones seen here from the SW. Some cones have been estimated to be only a few thousand years old.
