Altiplano-Puna Volcanic Complex TM Image Information

APVC TM May 1985 Thematic Mapper image of a portion of the APVC (21-24ºS, 66-68ºW).

Figure S10a - TM image of a portion of the APVC showing the location of the Sol de Mañana (SM) and Tatio (T) geothermal fields in Bolivia and Chile respectively. Small areas of geothermal activity are also found at Cerro Apacheta (A) and Huayllajara (H). The geothermal activity seems to be concentrated along several young normal faults (F). Holocene volcanic centers in this region are Volcan Putana (P; VCA no. 21), Volcan Escalante (E; VCA no. 22) and Cerro Tocopuri (CT; figure M5).
