Socompa
2014-08-19 10:02:27

Socompa is a complex stratovolcano that can be found at the border of Chile and Argentina, reaching an elevation of 19,852 feet. This volcano is best known for its avalanche debris deposit, which have formed the Monturaqui Basin on its west side, the most noted example of this type of deposit in the world. It is a difficult volcano to visit, taking at least a day by vehicle traveling from the north or the west. Socompa is also known for the microbial ecosystems that occur near grasses at its...
