APVC, Central Andes

Chile 2009

A group of us (from left: Bob Peckyno, Axel Schmitt, Dale Burns, Shan de Silva, Casey Tierney, and me) went to South America in the Fall of 2009 to study the explosive volcanic deposits in the Altiplano-Puna Volcanic Complex (APVC). A few weeks in the field were spent sampling various deposits that were erupted from various large caldera systems.
