Abstract Uturuncu is a dormant volcano in the Altiplano of SW Bolivia. A present day ~70 km diameter interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) anomaly roughly centred on Uturuncu’s edifice is believed to be a result of magma intrusion into an active crustal pluton. Past activity at the volcano, spanning 0.89 to 0.27 Ma, is exclusively effusive and almost all lavas and domes are dacitic with phenocrysts of plagioclase, orthopyroxene, biotite, ilmenite and Ti-magnetite plus or minus quartz… 
Experimental Constraints on Dacite Pre-eruptive Magma Storage Conditions beneath Uturuncu Volcano
Cerro Uturuncu is a long-dormant, compositionally monotonous, effusive dacitic volcano in the Altiplano–Puna Volcanic Complex (APVC) of SW Bolivia. The volcano recently gained attention following the

Uturuncu volcano, Bolivia: Volcanic unrest due to mid-crustal magma intrusion
Uturuncu volcano, SW Bolivia, is a dormant stratovolcano (∼85 km3) dominated by dacitic lava domes and flows. 39Ar/40Ar ages show that the volcano was active between 890 ka and 271 ka, with the lavas

Seismic Detection and Characterization of the Altiplano-Puna Magma Body, Central Andes
Abstract — The Altiplano-Puna Volcanic Complex (APVC) in the central Andes is the product of an ignimbrite “flare-up” of world class proportions (de Silva, 1989). The region has been the site of
