The little known Tutupaca volcano (17° 01′ S, 70° 21′ W), located at the southern end of the Peruvian arc, is a dacitic dome complex that experienced a large explosive eruption during historical times. Based on historic chronicles and our radiometric data, this eruption occurred 218 ± 14 aBP, probably between 1787 and 1802 AD. This eruption was characterised by a large sector collapse that triggered a small debris avalanche (<1 km3) and an associated pyroclastic eruption whose bulk volume was 6… Expand

Pre-eruptive magmatic processes associated with the historical (218 ± 14 aBP) explosive eruption of Tutupaca volcano (southern Peru)
Magma recharge into a differentiated reservoir is one of the main triggering mechanisms for explosive eruptions. Here we describe the petrology of the eruptive products of the last explosive eruptionExpand
The Tutupaca volcanic complex (Southern Peru): Eruptive chronology and successive destabilization of a dacitic dome complex
Abstract Several processes have been proposed as triggering mechanisms for the large sector collapses that affect most volcanoes, and which may occur several times in the volcano's lifetime. Here weExpand
Eruptive history of Incahuasi, Falso Azufre and El Cóndor Quaternary composite volcanoes, southern Central Andes
Volcanoes can stay dormant for much longer than 10 ka and hence many Quaternary volcanoes lacking Holocene activity have the potential to become active. Reconstructing the eruptive histories of theseExpand
Dynamic implications of ridges on a debris avalanche deposit at Tutupaca volcano (southern Peru)
Catastrophic volcanic landslides can involve different parts of a volcano that can be incorporated into any resulting debris avalanche. The different material properties may influence the mechanicalExpand
The eruptive chronology of the Yucamane-Calientes compound volcano: A potentially active edifice of the Central Andes (southern Peru)
Abstract We reconstruct the eruptive chronology of the Yucamane–Calientes compound volcano in southern Peru based on extensive fieldwork and a large dataset of geochronological (K-Ar, 40Ar/39Ar,Expand
Origin and dynamics of volcanic debris avalanches : surface structure analysis of Tutupaca volcano (Peru)
Landslides occur in all mountainous terrain, where the rock strength is unable to support topographic loading. Volcanic rocks are particularly landslide prone, as they mix strong and weak lithologiesExpand
Factors Contributing to Volcano Lateral Collapse
Many factors can lead to volcano lateral collapse, which can produce devastating debris avalanches that travel up to several tens to over 100 km and cover hundreds to more than a thousand km2 withExpand
Fault textures in volcanic debris-avalanche deposits and transformations into lahars: The Pichu Pichu thrust lobes in south Peru compared to worldwide avalanche deposits
Abstract Structures, lithofacies and semi-quantitative sedimentological analysis of volcanic debris-avalanche deposits are essential to constrain syn-emplacement processes along avalanche fault zonesExpand
First discovery of Holocene cryptotephra in Amazonia
It is indicated that the Amazon basin has been subject to volcanic ash fallout during the recent past and cryptotephra layers are preserved in a dynamic Amazonian peatland, suggesting that similar layers are likely to be present in other peat sequences that are important for palaeoenvironmental reconstruction.

Contrasting catastrophic eruptions predicted by different intrusion and collapse scenarios
It is found that intrusions produce three different volcano deformation patterns, one of them involving asymmetric intrusion and deformation, with the early development of a listric slump fault producing pronounced slippage of one sector. Expand


The physical volcanology of the 1600 eruption of Huaynaputina, southern Peru
Abstract. Volcán Huaynaputina is a group of four vents located at 16°36'S, 70°51'W in southern Peru that produced one of the largest eruptions of historical times when ~11 km3 of magma was eruptedExpand
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, theExpand
