The Huaynaputina volcano, southern Peru, was the site of the largest historical eruption (VEI 6) in the Andes in 1600 CE, which occurred during the historic transition between the Inca Empire and the Viceroyalty of Peru. This event had severe consequences in the Central Andes and a global climatic impact. Spanish chronicles reported that at least 15 villages or settlements existed around the volcano, of which seven of them were totally destroyed by the eruption. Multidisciplinary studies have… 
Volcano monitoring in Latin America: taking a step forward
Monitoring the state of active volcanoes is the foundational component of volcanic risk reduction strategies. To a large extent, these responsibilities rest with volcano observatories. Based on the
Bridges as Geoheritage Viewpoints in the Western Caucasus
Distant observation of unique geological and geomorphological features facilitates comprehension and tourism of these important resources. Bridges offer an opportunity for such observation, and the


The Somoto Grand Canyon (Nicaragua)—a Volcanic Geoheritage Site One Decade After Discovery: from Field Geological Mapping to the Promotion of a Geopark
After its ‘discovery’ during field geological mapping by geologists of the Czech Geological Survey in 2004, the gorge of the Coco River in NW Nicaragua, now known as the Somoto Grand Canyon, has been
Largest explosive eruption in historical times in the Andes at Huaynaputina volcano, a.d. 1600, southern Peru
The largest explosive eruption (volcanic explosivity index of 6) in historical times in the Andes took place in a.d. 1600 at Huaynaputina volcano in southern Peru. According to chronicles, the
The Volcanic Geoheritage of the Elephanta Caves, Deccan Traps, Western India
Geoheritage, geoconservation, and geotourism studies are of increasing interest worldwide because of their scientific, societal, cultural, and aesthetic value. Volcanic areas (whether active,
Integrated studies and revisions of Neopaleozoic-Mesozoic sedimentary basins and associated magmatism in the Andes of Pero and Bolivia (8°S-22°S) show that the southwestern margin of Gondwana was
Magma evolution of Quaternary minor volcanic centres in southern Peru, Central Andes
Minor centres in the Central Volcanic Zone (CVZ) of the Andes occur in different places and are essential indicators of magmatic processes leading to formation of composite volcano. The
Geochemical variations in igneous rocks of the Central Andean orocline (13°S to 18°S): Tracing crustal thickening and magma generation through time and space
Compositional variations of Central Andean subduction-related igneous rocks reflect the plate-tectonic evolution of this active continental margin through time and space. In order to address the
Geotourism in Volcanic and Geothermal Environments: Playing with Fire?
AbstractVolcanic and geothermal landforms have unique features which make them attractive destinations for geotourism, ecotourism and adventure tourism. Vast numbers of volcanic environments
A 25 myr chronostratigraphy of ignimbrites in south Peru: implications for the volcanic history of the Central Andes
With an area exceeding 25 000 km2 and volumes c. 5000 km3, south Peru hosts the Andes’ second largest Neogene ignimbrite field. We document the extent, stratigraphy and chronology of 12 ignimbrite
In situ cosmogenic 3He and 36Cl and radiocarbon dating of volcanic deposits refine the Pleistocene and Holocene eruption chronology of SW Peru
Constraining the age of young lavas, which generally fall outside the effective range of traditional geochronology methods, remains a key challenge in volcanology, limiting the development of
