Volcanoes in Chile

Continental Chile has a high concentration of active volcanoes due to its location along the Peru-Chile Trench, a subduction zone where the Nazca and Antarctic Plates are driven beneath the South American Plate. Easter Island, Juan Fernández Islands and other oceanic islands of Chile are extinct volcanoes created by hotspots. Chile has about 500 volcanoes considered active, 60 of which have had recorded eruptions in the last 450 years. (read more on Wikipedia)    -   Map (with volcano names)

If you click on the sun button on top of a webcam a clear weather image from that webcam will pop up to help you picture the lay of the land when the mountain is shrouded in dark clouds for days or weeks!
