A study of relations between ash-flow eruptions, lava-flow activity, and caldera structure at a mineralized volcanic center. Crops out over an area of 26, sq km in the Tusas Mountains, north-central NM, San Juan basin and San Luis basin and San Juan Mountains, CO, San Juan Mountain province. Divided into Esquibel and Cordito Members (adopted) which are largely contemporaneous and represent alluvial deposits that spread from different source areas into the basin. The San Juan Mountains are mostly co-extensive with the San Juan Volcanic field, a large area in southwestern Colorado, roughly triangular in shape, that includes many metal mining areas but also the zeolite producing outcrops west of Wolf Creek Pass.

Volcano - Volcano - Calderas: Most calderas—large circular or oval depressions more than 1 km ( mile) in diameter—have been formed by inward collapse of landforms after large amounts of magma have been expelled from underground.

(lava dome) Papayo volcano is a small lava dome on the crest of the Sierra Nevada range 47 km SE of Mexico City. Papayo has produced large dacitic lava flows reaching up to 10 km length, and was last active less t years ago, meaning it is to be considered potentially active. The San Juan Mountains in southwest Colorado nicely reflect this amazing moment in Earth’s history, geologically referred to as the “ignimbrite flare up”. An ignimbrite represents hot suspension of pumice, ash, and gases flowing rapidly from a volcano, somewhat like Mt. Saint Helens, but in this time period the volcanic activity was.

LaGarita Caldera, located in San Juan Mountains of southern Colorada 3. Valles Caldera west of Los Alamos, New Mexico These and similar calderas elsewhere around the globe are among the largest volcanic structures on Earth, hence the name "supervolcanoes".

A caldera is a large cauldron-like hollow that forms shortly after the emptying of a magma chamber/reservoir in a volcanic eruption. When large volumes of magma are erupted over a short time, structural support for the rock above the magma chamber is lost.

The ground surface then collapses downward into the emptied or partially emptied magma chamber, leaving a massive. The Cove Fort area has basalt and basaltic-andesite lava flows and cinder cones with K-Ar whole-rock ages of ~ Ma. What causes this very young volcanism, probably just more B&R extension.

The thickest ones, such as in the San Juan Mountains (Colorado, USA), accumulated rapidly during individual supereruptions and represent the thickest single-event deposits on the Earth.

As with outflow sheets, they may be monotonous and crystal rich, crystal poor, or variously zoned.
