TM image of Nevados Coropuna, showing the extent of the ice-cap (light blue) that obscures much of the upper parts of the volcano. Saturations masks detail in the ice cap. Several postglacial lava flows (L) can be detected overlying moraines and glacial valleys (GV) related to the ~10,000 year glacial regression. Inset shows ice cap without contrast stretching, showing the location of major vents.
