Remote sensing studies of the Central Andean volcanic province between 18°–27°S with the Landsat Thematic Mapper have revealed the presence of 28 previously undescribed breached volcanic cones and 14 major volcanic debris avalanche deposits, of which only 3 had previously been identified. Several of the debris avalanche deposits cover areas in excess of 100 km2 and have volumes of the order of 10 km3. H/L ratios for the deposits have a median of 0.1 and a mean of 0.11, values similar to those… Expand
Application of the Landsat Thematic Mapper to the identification of potentially active volcanoes in the central Andes
Abstract Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) images have been used to make the first comprehensive study of the Central Andean volcanic province (∼ 14°S–28°S), one of the world's largest zones of activeExpand
The Socompa collapse and avalanche event
Failure of the northwestern flank of the Socompa volcano, north Chile, about 7000 years ago created a 40-km-long debris avalanche deposit. The deposit is remarkably well-exposed. We have combinedExpand
Debris avalanche deposits associated with large igneous province volcanism; an example from the Mawson Formation, central Allan Hills, Antarctica
An up-to-180-m-thick debris avalanche deposit related to Ferrar large igneous province magmatism is observed at central Allan Hills, Antarctica. This Jurassic debris avalanche deposit forms the lowerExpand
Remote sensing study of sector collapses and debris avalanche deposits at Oldoinyo Lengai and Kerimasi volcanoes, Tanzania
Evidence for volcano collapse and debris avalanche deposits (DADs) at Oldoinyo Lengai (OL), Tanzania, has been obtained from mapping and fieldwork. Three major DADs have been identified, named Zebra,Expand
The structure, morphology, and surface texture of debris avalanche deposits : field and remote sensing mapping and analogue modelling
Flank collapse generates avalanches and large landslides that significantly change the shape of a volcano and alter the surrounding landscape. Most types of volcanoes experience flank collapse atExpand
Large debris avalanches and associated eruptions in the Holocene eruptive history of Shiveluch Volcano, Kamchatka, Russia
Abstract Shiveluch Volcano, located in the Central Kamchatka Depression, has experienced multiple flank failures during its lifetime, most recently in 1964. The overlapping deposits of at least 13Expand
Morphology and emplacement of an unusual debris-avalanche deposit at Jocotitlán volcano, Central Mexico
A pre-historic collapse of the northeastern flank of Jocotitlán Volcano (3950 m), located in the central part of the Trans Mexican Volcanic Belt, produced a debris-avalanche deposit characterized byExpand
Geological constraints on the emplacement mechanism of the Parinacota debris avalanche, northern Chile
Abstract The Holocene Parinacota Volcanic Debris Avalanche (ca. 8,000 years B.P.) is located in the central Andes of northern Chile. The avalanche formed by the sector collapse of a majorExpand
Geology, failure conditions, and implications of seismogenic avalanches of the 1944 eruption at Vesuvius, Italy
Abstract Widespread avalanching occurred at Mt. Vesuvius during its 1944 eruption, the latest activity of this volcano. The 1944 avalanche deposits display many of the morphological and structuralExpand
Geomorphic assessment of the debris avalanche deposit from the Jocotitlán volcano, Central Mexico
Abstract Edifice collapse of the Jocotitlan volcano produced a debris avalanche deposit whose morphology is characterized by conical hummocks and elongated ridges. We consulted aerial photographs,Expand
