South America

(without Chile.)

The volcanoes of South America are almost all situated on the western side of the continent, where the subduction of the oceanic Nazca and Caribbean Plates under the South American Plate has pushed up the Andes as part of the American Cordilliera. This process is still going on and the visible aspect of it are devastating earthquakes and the numerous active volcanoes in those countries.



The notes of seconds/minutes above an image show the approx. auto-refresh time. - 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!

These two volcanoes on the border Colombia/Ecuador are classified as active stratovolcanoes, dominantly effusive with evidence of high explosive stages. Since Nov. 2013 hundreds of thousands of earthquakes occurred, mostly at depths <10km, and the alert level Orange has intermittently been called. |Seismograms|

Nevado del Ruiz is located 129 kilometers (80 mi) west of the capital city Bogotá with a hight of 5321 m. Its (often Plinian) eruptions often cause massive lahars. On November 13, 1985, a small eruption produced an enormous lahar that buried and destroyed the town of Armero in Tolima, causing an estimated 25,000 deaths - the deadliest lahar in recorded history. Ruiz is the second-most active volcano in Colombia after Galeras. (Wikipedia). It's observation is maintained by the Observatorio Manizales. |Seismograms|
