Parinacota TM Image Information

Parinacota TM

May 1985 Thematic Mapper image of Parinacota (18º10'S, 69º09'W). TM Scene ID=50129-14042, Scene 00173, bands 5,4,2. Scale Bar = 10km.

TM image of the Nevados de Payachata. The younger Volcan Parinacora (P) lies to the south while the older Pomerape is to the north. Hummocky topography immediately to the west of Parincota is the remnant of the debris flow (DF), and Lake Chungara to the south is largest of the lakes that developed due to the dam created by this material. On the southern and southwestern flanks of the volcano the young "Ajata" lava flows can be seen (L). Morro Caquena is the large lava to the northwest of Pomerape.
