Volcán Descabezado Grande
WI_ch258o.jpg Volcanic field Descabezado Grande - Cerro Azul Thumbnails Rancagua  |  Contrast or not?

View in E direction to a bright zone of siliciom dioxide-rich volcanic deposits. The source of this material is not only the Volcán Descabezado Grande (3953 m, in the centre), but mainly a secondary vent of Cerro Azul (not visble in this image). A huge eruption occurred there in 1932.
